I bring my nieces here a lot when we visit the island. The kids love to play and swing. It is a really safe area and the playground is far from the road.

Every year while wintering on Amelia Island we bring our grandchildren here when they come and visit. There are several of the large plastic fixed play sets and we really enjoy the adult&child swings, never have seen these before. The ground coverage is mulch.

The park sits on the east end of town and has multiple uses amd although a great expanse of green it is not that attractive and not worth a visit unless to particpate in some sporting activity.

This Central Park was designed to reflect Central Park in NY on a much smaller scale. Beautiful area with lots of playground equipment for children, picnic tables and a Veterans' Memorial area. Nice place to relax and enjoy the beautiful area.

Named after the other Central Park in N.Y. City, there really is no similarities between the two. Our park doesn't have a zoo, a carousel, hansom cabs, or many of the things found in a big city. No, this park is like small town, U.S.A....More
