About Blue Cypress Park, Community Center & Golf Course

The city-owned park named Blue Cypress in the Arlington section of Jacksonville, was at one time a local 18-hole golf course for the Edenfield River Estates development. Because the park is located in an environmentally sensitive area, plans were developed to reduce the course to a 9-hole golf course and use the remaining area for a natural, resourced-based public outdoor recreation site. The original facilities included a community center (former clubhouse) and swimming pool (since closed), golf course and tennis courts. In July 2001 the fishing dock, and a boardwalk along the St. John’s River were completed. In 2003 the 9 hole golf course opened until 2016 when the course closed. In 2004, soccer fields, trails, tennis courts and a concession restroom building were added. Pickleball is available at this park as well.

In April 2021 a Grand Reopening ceremony of the golf course was held with Council Members Joyce Morgan and Ron Salem announcing their excitement for the community. In the future, three more holes will be added to round the course out to a 12 hole course.  First Tee of Duval will also offer a program.
