The Emerald Trail is a 30-mile urban trail and linear park system that will connect 14 historic neighborhoods to downtown, the St. Johns River, McCoys Creek and Hogans Creek. It will link 16 schools, two colleges and 21 parks among other destinations like cafes, shops, festivals, and events.The first trail segment to be built, the 1.3-mile LaVilla Link will open later this year!

As Jacksonville’s signature recreational amenity, the Emerald Trail will be the place where people of all ages, races, cultures and walks of life come together to run, walk, ride and connect with nature and with one another. Learn more at groundworkjacksonville.org or follow @GroundworkJax.
