The City of Jacksonville has built a recreational trail on the north side of Lake Jacksonville. The Friends of the Trails Initiative of the Jacksonville Park Foundation invites the community to learn and love the path through new Sunday Strolls.

Come on out to Lake Jacksonville in the evening on the first Sunday of each month. The first gathering will be between 5-7pm Sunday May 5. What time should future Sunday Strolls be? See poll at end of post …

Park in the boat launch lot. Walk, run, or ride – bring the whole family. No official start. The goal is simply to have a concentration of people on a promenade to encourage interaction on the recreational trail.

Restroom facilities located at concession building near the boat dock.

Walkers have right of way. Bicycles yield to people on foot. Campers with permit can ride golf carts, and they must yield to people walking, running or biking.
