About Joe Carlucci Sisters Creek Park and Boat Ramp

The Joe Carlucci Sisters Creek Park and Boat Ramp is located in northeast Jacksonville, at the confluence of Sisters Creek and the St. Johns River. Known as Two Sisters Creek when Florida was a colony of Spain, the name derives from two similar hardwood hammocks that were situated on either side of the creek, which is now part of the Inland Waterway. The City purchased most of the land for the park in 1974, and completed the acquisition in 1986 by closing the portion of Old Heckscher Drive that divided the property. The dedication of the park portion took place in November 1987, and construction of the boat ramp was completed in December 1988. The City Council renamed the facility in 1991 to honor of Joseph A. Carlucci, who passed away in February 1986 at the age of fifty-eight. In 1978, after serving as a City Councilman for ten years, the voters elected him to the Florida Senate – an office he held until his death. Additional features:
