6th Annual Summer Park Hop Series: Fernandina Beach Pirate Playground

We are headed to Fernandina Beach for our next park hop, which will held at the Pirate Playground on Monday, July 1st from 9-11 am. Located in a breezy, shaded area among the trees, this unique playground integrates exercise, art, nature, music, imagination and local history for children of all ages. It features a water play area as well as a make-believe pirate ship, and it is truly a one of a kind park. Bring the kids and meet other moms from your neighborhood or make an adventure and try a new park you’ve never been to! Make fun summer memories as you explore all of the great outdoor spaces that Jacksonville has to offer.
