Jacksonville, Fla. – May 14, 2015 – On Friday, May 15, the Memorial Park Association, in collaboration with the City of Jacksonville, will launch an “Adopt The Park” sponsorship program, featuring local business sponsors.

This year’s sponsorships totaled over $21,000 and will directly impact the MPA’s yearly costs to enhance and beautify Memorial Park.
The “Adopt The Park” sponsorship program launch will feature:
- The “Adopt The Park Sponsors” web page.
- The installation of four new welcome stations, which will include signage, naming the “Promenade” and “Mr. Dawson Society” sponsors and feature the “Esplanade” sponsorship level.
