About Tom Marshall Park

Tom Marshall Park is located in the Dunn Creek Farms area of north Jacksonville. In 1953 the Dunn Creek Community Club donated the land to Duval County, and the park was created soon thereafter. The City expanded the park by one acre with a purchase in 1992. Tom Marshall (1902-1953) graduated from local schools and the University of Florida Law School in 1929. He excelled as an athlete, but chose the practice of law over a professional career as a baseball pitcher. From 1933-40, he served on the City Council, as president and chairman of major committees, and from 1940 until his death as a Duval County Commissioner. The Northside Athletic Association plays youth baseball games at the site, and for many years has been an active participant with the City in park improvements. Additional features:
