University Park

University Park is the home to Jacksonville’s largest park, the 120 acre Blue Cypress Park and Golf Course, Indian burial grounds, and the historic St. Isabel Plantation. Today the boundaries of the community are the St. Johns River on the west, Ft. Caroline Road on the south and a wandering St. Isabel Drive on the east and north. Large waterfront homes and smaller ranch style homes can the found through out this community, which is very convenient to downtown Jacksonville and the Beaches.

The community had several periods of development from the mid 1950s through the early 1970s. With growth covering nearly twenty years, homes of many shapes and sizes can be found throughout the neighborhood of nearly five hundred homes. Many of its homes have large oak trees which are much loved for their beauty and cursed during times of hurricanes, and intense northeasters.

University Park is a blend of retired residents who are the original owners of their homes as well as many first time homeowners who are looking for an established neighborhood, with homes that were built to last.

University Park Civic Association (UPCA) has been an active association for most of the history of the community. In recent years, UPCA has leveraged technology,, and “people on the street” to establish a Neighborhood Watch program and a strong sense of community.

University Park remains a great place to raise your family.
