Sustainable living has given us so much! Look how it benefited Jacksonville’s natural areas!
The sustainable living concept is one of the things that make Jacksonville so great! With the city’s commitment to recycling and reducing its carbon footprint, you can see how highly they regard it here. Some communities take it a step further which is a big draw for their residents. RiverTown is located along the banks of the St. Johns River and is surrounded by miles of natural preserves. The location coupled with the community’s efforts perpetuates the sustainable living concept of clean and healthy living.
The Multitude of City Parks
Jacksonville’s parks go all the way back to 1857, when Hemming Park was sold to the city for $10. Recognizing the value of natural spaces for the citizens of Jacksonville, the city added more and more parks until residents had roughly 400 green spaces to choose to play in and enjoy the natural world around them in.
Stupendous State Parks
State parks are special in that the state of Florida has set them aside and preserved them for people to visit and enjoy their natural beauty. People are drawn to the clean outdoor air, the abundance of things to do and the beautiful wildlife in the area. Conservation-minded residents and park employees have worked hard to ensure that historical, ecological, and socially relevant places such as Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park and George Crady Bridge Fishing Pier State Park are protected for future generations.
Two National Parks
Designated by Congress and controlled by the National Park Service, these parks focus their efforts on the conservation of natural and historical resources as much as they do on making the parks a great place to visit. Jacksonville has two national parks, Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve, and Fort Caroline National Memorial. Their preservation means that ecologically sensitive and historically relevant areas will be preserved for future generations.
22 Miles of Beaches
Beaches host an exclusive, delicate ecosystem that can’t be found anywhere else. Jacksonville is known for hosting 22 miles of beaches, including the historical Mayport Village, Huguenot Memorial Park with its 70 primitive camping spots, and Big Talbot Islands. You’ll find locals at these beaches swimming, surfing and shell hunting!
