    A scenic waterfront park at the edge of the city

    by noidiotsplease Updated Jun 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While better known for its abundant pristine beach parks and the enormous Timucuan Preserve that comprises much of the city's northeast side, Jacksonville's park system (the largest urban park system in the country) also contains numerous smaller gems sprinkled throughout the city. One such gem is Mandarin Park, located along a very wide stretch of the St. Johns River and a peaceful tributary called Julington Creek. Heavily wooded with jogging trails, picnic areas and a marina, Mandarin Park offers a scenic, shady retreat that's perfect for a romantic picnic or family fun time. Located within the southernmost edge of Jacksonville's city limits in Duval County, from here you can look south across Julington Creek and see St. Johns County or look southwest across the wide expanse of the St. Johns River and see the distant shoreline of Clay County.
