About North Shore Park

North Shore Park lies nestled between Pearl Street and the Trout River in the North Shore neighborhood of north Jacksonville. Mainly farms and lumber/naval stores operations occupied the area through most of the 1800’s. The original park was included and named on the original plat of North Shore in 1915. After the City annexed the area in 1925, it later expanded the park by acquiring adjacent property in 1943 and 1944. The park contained picnic facilities and a boat landing in 1969, and an asphalt walking trail and stone benches were added in 1987. Though the park now provides a children’s play area, it is largely an attractive, passive park overlooking the river, where visitors may relax and picnic under a canopy of oak trees and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.  A shoreline kayak launch was developed in 2018. A new playscape was installed spring 2023. Additional features:
