The Wayne B. Stevens Boat Ramp is located along Fishing Creek in the Ortega Farms section of southwest Jacksonville. The creek flows into the Ortega River about two thousand feet downstream from the ramp. While three Jacksonville police officers were ocean fishing east of Mayport in March 1975, their boat capsized and Wayne B. Stevens (1949-1975) drowned. Soon thereafter, the ramp was renamed in his honor. An avid fisherman, he lived with his wife and two children on Timuquana Road, in the vicinity of the boat ramp.
