Bring a picnic, a game and some friends or walk with your pup and enjoy the riverfront view at Memorial Park in Jacksonville, Florida. This small park on the St. Johns River is a popular spot in the Riverside neighborhood of Jacksonville for walking, playing a pickup game of soccer, lounging in a hammock, and fishing off the bulkhead. The park was dedicated on Christmas Day in 1924, and pays homage to the 1,200 Floridians who perished in WWI. The focal point of the park is the locally iconic bronze sculpture "Life," created by artist Charles Adrian Pillars. The park features a circular sidewalk lined with benches, great for running or walking laps, trees lining the outskirts of the park, where many residents hang a hammock or sit to read, and a big central grass field often used for picnics and games. There is limited parking directly adjacent to the park.
