Riverfront 2025: A Look Ahead

On February 8, 2023, the City of Jacksonville’s Downtown Investment Authority and Parks & Recreation Department, Build Up Downtown, Riverfront Parks Now and the Jessie Ball duPont Fund co-hosted a live update on Downtown Riverfront parks, as well as provided a chance for Jaxsons to learn more about the private developments on our Northbank and Southbank.

Jacksonville’s Riverfront is on the verge of a major transformation. Various projects are underway to create a vibrant Riverfront destination inclusive of world-class parks, mixed-use developments and infrastructure enhancements that will maximize public access, reconnect the community to our river and create an iconic Riverfront for all.
