Ronnie Van Zant Park in Lake Asbury, Green Cove Springs Florida: A Great Place To Play!
Located in Green Cove Springs, in the Lake Asbury area. (Check out the map below) This fun park is within a mile, mile and a half from the neighborhoods listed below the slideshow. Jump on your bike, walk or jump in the car for some fun in the sun.
Wanna shoot some hoops? You’re covered! Tennis anyone? Yep, you guessed it, tennis courts await you. Beach volleyball, without the beach, but with plenty of sand. There’s a baseball field and empty fields to fly a kite, launch a rocket. Not a big rocket, we’re not sending anyone into space from here. 🙂
Clay County Pal football practices at the park too, which makes it convenient for the folks who live nearby. My daughter’s 3v3 team has practiced at the park as well. Lots of room, plenty of space.
New to the park is Frisbee golf. One day, I saw a bunch of men pushing what look like strollers, so I thought, how sweet, the guys are taking their kiddos to the park. It was actually guys playing Frisbee golf. The strollers were actually their carts carrying their Frisbees. 🙂
Can’t forget the slides and swings! Huge playset for the kids to swing, slide, hang and jump from! Nestled in the trees for some shade, with plenty of benches and a couple of pavilions close by, complete with grills. We have had a few birthday parties here along with an after season BBQ forour U10 soccer team.
Head towards the back of the park, where you will encounter a beautiful pond! If you have a fishing license and a kid, you can go fishing there. Just make sure, the kid is one you know and you’re not just randomly grabbing just any child just to go fishing there. 🙂
The pond is a great place to bring a lunch and a book and chill while the kids are at school. Multiple pavilions to sit down under some shade and chill.
