History

The property was originally owned by John Hunter, a retired Jacksonville Sheriff’s Officer. The park is named after his daughter, who died protecting her nephew from a drunk driver. Cuba Hunter Park`s 10,000 sq. ft. skateboard facility has great features, including a 6-foot half pipe, a 7-foot quarter pipe, jump boxes, multiple rails and a bank ramp with a partial pyramid. Smooth cement and sturdy steel construction rank this site with other top city-owned skateboard parks across the country. Cuba Hunter Park also includes two playscapes, a multi-use athletic field, a 0.25mile boardwalk winding through more than 3.5 acres of wetlands, and a covered pavilion with three picnic tables and two grills. In 2005 a gymnasium with an elevated track and a community building were added. In 2006 an additional picnic pavilion was constructed near the lake.
