About Wheat Road Park

Wheat Road Park is located on the south side of Wheat Road, in the Tree Top Estates neighborhood of southwest Jacksonville. Jacksonville Heights Elementary School was built across from the park site in 1964, and between 1974 and 1989 the developer platted Tree Top Estates. In 1980, the City purchased the land for the park, which opened soon thereafter. Established in the 1970’s, the West Duval Youth Association (WDYA) began using the ball fields at both the school and the park for its programs, which in 2005 include Pre-T-ball, T-ball, softball, and baseball for children 4-12 years of age. Its headquarters are situated on the north side of Wheat Road. The City expanded the park in 1994 by purchasing a 1.7-acre strip adjacent to its eastern side. With funding and improvements by the City and many volunteer hours of work and stewardship by the WDYA, the park is a good example of a successful public/private partnership. Additional features:
