About Stinson Park

Stinson Park is located adjacent to the Ortega River Bridge in the Lakeside Park neighborhood that was platted in 1907. The extension of the streetcar line in 1908 from downtown Jacksonville through Lakeside Park and over the new wooden bridge to Ortega, greatly facilitated the area’s growth. The park is named for William M. Stinson, a physician and the president of Riverside Realty Co., the developer who dedicated the land for the park to Duval County in 1912. A medical officer during World War I, he was active in local civic affairs and died in 1954. In 2001, neighborhood residents organized to renovate and beautify five City properties in the area, including Stinson Park. They enlisted the City’s support, and a beautiful new park design was created in 2003, with construction completed in August 2004. Additional features: floating dock launch
