Yancey Park is located on Soutel Drive, in the Ribault Hills neighborhood of northwest Jacksonville. Development of Ribault Hills Unit One began in 1948, and the plat included Yancey Park, which was most likely named for William L. Yancey, the surveyor of the subdivision. Mr. Yancey worked for Ellis, Curtis, and Kooker, one of Jacksonville’s oldest and largest civil engineering and surveying firms. In 1965, the park contained only playground equipment, but by 1974 possessed most of the present-day amenities. Since that time a concession building has been added, along with a new playground funded by WTLV and Home Depot that opened in July 1992. As of February 2005, the site is home to the Forestview Athletic Association, which uses Yancey Park for its youth baseball/softball and football/cheerleading programs.
