There are 37 acres of greenspace creating the border between Downtown and the Springfield Historic District. Confederate Park and playground, H.J. Klutho Park, W.W. Schell Park, and McPherson Park all make up the Springfield park system. Pocket parks work in certain situations, but this area is urban Jacksonville's true Central Park .
2. Confederate Park
During the early decades, citizens came from all over Jacksonville to attend cultural events
at the park or to see the beautiful Rose Arbor. Visitors strolled along the lovely Hogans
Creek Promenade that opened in 1930, and in more recent years attend events sponsored by
the Springfield Improvement Association & Woman’s Club.
