About Henry L. Brown Kooker Park

Henry L. Brown-Kooker Park is located in the Talleyrand section of north Jacksonville. It comprises part of the old Longbranch subdivision, which was platted prior to 1901. The City acquired the site in 1922 from Samuel and Ida Kooker, and soon thereafter the property was developed and named Kooker Park. The Boys and Girls Club of Northeast Florida initiated a program at the park in 1972 and currently maintains a building on the grounds, which boasts several picturesque oaks. Henry L. Brown built a 30-year career with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida. He became the area director of Kooker Park Boys and Girls Club, which serves low-income youth, and coached many city, state, and national youth teams before his death. In 2003, the park was renamed in his honor. Additional features:
