Memorial Park

Memorial Park is a beautiful, riverfront park found in the 5 Points area of Riverside. The park has a rich history, it was designed by the renowned Olmsted Brothers firm who are famous for parks like Central Park in New York.

The main feature of the park is the bronze sculpture Life, created by the celebrated Charles Adrian Pillars. This statue honors the Floridians that died in service during World War I. The substantial sculpture is back dropped by the St. Johns River making for a wonderful photo opportunity. The grassy lawn is often filled with picnicking families and pick-up soccer games on the weekends. Along the water you may find fishing or just casual observers enjoying the view of the widest part of the St. Johns River.

This park is a perfect spot to take an evening stroll and to watch the sunset.

If you want to explore all of the features of the park, the Memorial Park Association has put together a self-guided tour of the park.
