Pocket parks: Greenscape Celebration Park

See also

This quarter-acre gem is a well kept neighborhood secret. Located at the end of LaSalle Street in San Marco, it is without a doubt the perfect place to watch a romantic Florida sunset. Perched on the edge of the St. Johns River at the terminus of Palm Avenue, the park was renovated in 2009 to match the Victorian feel of the adjacent Alexandria condominiums. Wrought iron fencing, brick pavers and turn-of-the-century style lamps bring it all together to create a small tranquil space that seems far away from the city. Beyond the boat traffic, river-watchers may even be fortunate enough to spot dolphin pods fishing in the powerful current of the north-flowing St. Johns.
