Argyle Forest Park

Argyle Forest Park

8533 Acanthus Drive
Jacksonville, FL 32244

Argyle Forest Park is located in the Argyle East Village subdivision of southwest Jacksonville, just north of the Orange Park area. The developer created a park for the community that included numerous amenities, and then donated the site to the Argyle Athletic Association in 1988. While retaining the swimming pool complex, the Association donated the remainder of the park to the City in 1994. This donation comprises the north two-thirds of the present park, and the south one-third was purchased by the City in 1986, and later added to the park. Following the donation in 1994, the City renovated the north portion, and then added ball fields, a concession building, and other amenities to the south parcel. The Association provides T-ball/softball/baseball programs for boys and girls 4 to 18 years of age, and together with the City, operates and maintains the park, which also hosts non-athletic events such as a program of live concerts in 2004. In 2007: ADA sidewalks were completed to all the ballfields, bleachers, and dugouts. The park also includes:  Lighted baseball fields with bleachers, 28 car parking lot, concession stands, grills, 11 picnic tables, restrooms, lighted hard tennis courts.
