Emerald Trail LaVilla Link


The Emerald Trail will create a 30-mile network of bike-ped trails to connect Downtown to 14 historic neighborhoods, 18 schools, two colleges and nearly 30 parks. Groundwork Jacksonville will soon open the LaVilla Link, which connects the S-Line Rail Trail in Springfield to the Prime Osborn Convention Center via 1.3 miles of walking and biking lanes, additional lighting and overlooks with shade and railings. The LaVilla Link is the first of nine Emerald Trail projects that are expected to be completed over the course of the next decade.

Expected completion: Spring 2024
