ADOPT THE PARK SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM

 

The Memorial Park Association established the “Adopt the Park” program in May 2015. Memorial Park plays a vital role in our community and a partnership with our “Adopt the Park” sponsors ensures that it will continue to be a source of legacy for generations to come.

The Memorial Park Association, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Florida non-profit entity dedicated to the protection and preservation of Memorial Park in Jacksonville, Florida. It was created in 1986 by a group of park enthusiasts and local philanthropists concerned with Memorial Park’s persistent state of decline and disrepair, just a year after Memorial Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Riverside (now Riverside-Avondale) National Historic District.

The Association is in a time of great growth as we raise awareness in the community about who we are and the intrinsic value Memorial Park has for the community and especially our North Bank businesses. We are enthused over our latest prospects and hopeful you will share an interest to support the work we do in the park.

To learn more about becoming an “Adopt the Park” sponsor and what it can mean for your business, Memorial Park, and our community, please contact us at info@memparkjax.org.
