There are 37 acres of greenspace creating the border between Downtown and the Springfield Historic District. Confederate Park and playground, H.J. Klutho Park, W.W. Schell Park, and McPherson Park all make up the Springfield park system.
Pocket parks work in certain situations, but this area is urban Jacksonville's true Central Park.
