Explore San Marco’s Lilian S. Davin Park 

Located in one of Jacksonville's most sought-after neighborhoods is Lillian S. Davin Park - a 500 x 50-foot median on River Road. The park was once part of a carriage lane and bridle path at the famed Villa Alexandria estate which was built in the 1870’s. We recommend biking to the park from San Marco Square. There's lots of side streets with beautiful homes, trees, and small parks along the way.
