About Ray Greene Park

Ray Greene Park is located in the Highlands section of north Jacksonville. The park opened in 1957, and quadrupled in size with the addition of 30 acres in 1976-77. It is named for former Duval County Commissioner C. Ray Greene Sr. (1892-1964), who served continuously from 1934 to 1962. A pharmacist who lived in Brentwood and operated the Brentwood Pharmacy, he said that his greatest satisfaction from public service was his work to prevent juvenile delinquency. An off-road bicycle course was built at the park in the early 1980’s, a major renovation completed in 1999, and a 2004 renovation includes two new soccer fields, two restroom/concession buildings, and two basketball courts, along with road paving, landscaping, and parking for 257 cars. Completed in 2007 is the addition of a restroom building that services the tennis courts and the playgrounds area. Additional features:
