Jacksonville Mom Neighborhood and Community Groups

Introducing Neighborhood and Parenting Groups in Jacksonville!

Our primary goal in creating Jacksonville Mom (formerly Jacksonville Moms Blog) was to connect moms online, as well as offline through playdates and our events. Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the United States and we would like to make it feel a little smaller by creating neighborhood playgroups! Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our monthly meet-ups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area.

We currently have 14 neighborhood groups and 10 specialty groups available to join. Don’t see your neighborhood? We’re just starting this program so please let us know so we can get your area covered. Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group!

Current Neighborhood Groups:

Callahan/Bryceville/Hilliard Moms
Downtown/San Marco/St. Nicholas
Mandarin/Julington Creek
St. Johns/210
Orange Park/Fleming Island/Oakleaf
Riverside/Avondale/Ortega/Murray Hill

Other Groups:

Megan Kilis
Born in Jacksonville and raised in New Orleans and Houston, Megan attended college in Knoxville, then worked in Nashville. From her nomadic lifestyle grew a love for the beach, as well as a fondness for Cajun food and jazz, Texas BBQ, Tennessee football, and everything Music City. She is a work-from-home mompreneur with a passion for business, fashion, fitness, community, and all things mom. Having fallen in love with her parents’ hot plumber Mike in 2007, she married him two years later in her parents’ backyard. After their spunky curly-haired charmer Kingsley was born in February 2010, Megan decided not to return to her job. While spending time as a stay-at-home mom, however, she realized that Jacksonville was lacking some important resources for moms–so in August 2012, she asked her friend Vicky to join her in starting Jacksonville Moms Blog, now Jacksonville Mom. Megan loves learning more about her city; connecting with other moms, as well as connecting moms with one another; and discovering new local businesses. As the blog has grown, so has her family: in May 2014, she and Mike welcomed a spirited baby boy named Britton. When she’s not working on Jacksonville Mom, you can find Megan sweating it out with other moms, shooting skeet with Mike, or running around on the beach with her energetic duo!


  1. I am a mother of 14 months little girl. We moved here from Virginia Beach to downtown Jacksonville. I would love to be a part of the mom’s group and learn about various activities/child care available in downtown area. Thank you.

    • Hi Dahl,

      Did you click on the link for the Downtown group and ask to be added? That’s all you have to do! Just answer the questions and agree to the rules of the group. We would love to have you.

  2. Hello Megan, My name is Darnita, I would love to get more info on becoming a contributing writer in the Jacksonville Mom blog and share some busy mom tips. Could you send me more info if you have any available opportunities. I am a blogger at Pleading Mom (website below). Thanks

  3. Hi, We live in New Jersey but we are researching potential states to relocate to. We have a 22 year old son with autism and his well being is my #1 concern. Currently he participates in 2 adult programs during the day, however they have been zoom sessions since July. I am eager to find a state that has great “adults with disabilities” day programs and eventually residence. In NJ it’s the Department of Developmental Disabilities and the day programs are all private. Can someone help steer me in the right direction as to what Florida is like for adults with disabilities supports?

  4. Hi Megan. We are moving to Queens Harbour in Jacksonville in the New Year with our 4-year old and hoping for some information regarding schools and fun for him. Can you provide and info? Thank you

  5. Hey!
    I’m Kellen, a mom to a fun 15 month old son Khoda, and another little boy on the way due in August! We’re a military family that moved to Jacksonville from California a month ago. We’d love to meet more moms and kiddos that would enjoy outdoor play dates, mom dates, and just having fun!

  6. Hi Jacksonville friends! I am visiting from Texas to see my dearest friends, Heather & Kristen. Kristen is a new mom of a 5 month old precious baby girl. She is also a rockstar RN that works for me from home. We are seeking a part-time high school or college female student to help her with the baby in Orange Park area. The position would be flexible for planned vacations, family events, etc. Hours would range from 10a-3p M-F. Please email me if you know any kiddos that might be looking for a part time income. 💕 [email protected]

  7. Hi! I am a soon to be grandmother! I just moved here from Naples. I am an elementary teacher and will be teaching in Ponte Vedra this fall. I am also a tutor of 3rd-5th grade students. I am wondering how I can connect with moms for tutoring opportunities? Thank you!

  8. Hi! I am a disabled Army veteran wife and active duty mother of two sons, the oldest is 8 and has CP, developmental delay and ADHD. I am looking at relocating to Jacksonville after military retirement. I am currently here working for a few months and would love to connect with other moms in the area that have insight on education, recreation, medical/therapy or resources and/or support for a child with CP to best decide which area/schools of Jacksonville to consider in my quest to relocate. I look forward to connecting.
