About Emmett Reed Park

Emmett Reed Park was dedicated on September 28, 1969. The land was acquired for the park by a donation from E.J. and Mary E L’Engle in 1941. The 12.5-acre complex is a neighborhood park serving the residents in the Jacksonville urban core. In addition to a wide range of amenities including playscapes, 2 tennis courts and a swimming pool, the community center houses many community services programs. The entire complex is named for Emmett Reed, a native of Jacksonville, and an employee of the Recreation Department of the City of Jacksonville for over thirty years. In 2002, City of Jacksonville recieved an Urban Park Renewal and Recovery Program grant to build the Emmett Reed Tennis Facility. The facility is being built in partnership with the MaliVia Washington Kids foundation. The facility is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2008. Additional features:
