Overview

Come learn about the rebirth of Downtown Jacksonville's iconic public square and help envision what the park can become in the coming years. The First Coast Section is partnering with the Friends of Hemming Park (www.hemmingpark.org) so that local urban planners can share their knowledge and ideas with park staff. The event starts with a tour of the park and surrounding area, followed by a short lunch. There will then be a presentation and discussion of placemaking principles based on guidance from the Project for Public Spaces (www.pps.org). Finally, attendees will collaboratively develop ideas with staff on park enhancements and programming.
