About Dinsmore Park and Community Center

Dinsmore Park and Community Center is located in northwest Jacksonville. A small area that includes the park has been the heart of the Dinsmore community since at least the latter 1800’s. It contains the Dinsmore Cemetery, the Dinsmore Elementary School, the Dinsmore Baptist Church, and the Dinsmore Community Center.

After leasing land from the School Board around 1956, Duval County established the facility known as Dinsmore Civic Ball Park, which contained a lighted softball field, a picnic area, and a community building. Later additions included a health clinic, along with the youth sports program of the Dinsmore Athletic Association. With the support of City Councilman Warren Alvarez, the City completed a major improvement project at the park in March 2006. Planning has also begun to convert the old community center into a history museum operated by the Dinsmore Heritage Association.
