Springfield Park is located near downtown, in the Springfield area of North Jacksonville. On August 11, 2020 City Council passed a bill (2020-0347-E) renaming Confederate Park to Springfield Park. The name change came amid protests ignited by the City and the nation’s call for change on racism.
Moreover, in 1907, the park was first named Dignan Park, for a Chairman of the Board of Public Works and it contained the City’s first supervised playground. The United Confederate Veterans chose 1) Jacksonville as the site for their annual reunion in 1914 and 2) the park as the site for a monument honoring the Women of the Southland. Five months after the reunion of an estimated 8,000 former Confederate soldiers, the City renamed the park and the monument was erected the next year. During the early decades, citizens came from all over Jacksonville to attend cultural events at the park or to see the beautiful Rose Arbor. Visitors strolled along the lovely Hogans Creek Promenade that opened in 1930 and in more recent years attend events sponsored by the Springfield Improvement Association and Women’s Club.
