Promoting public access to Hanna Park
Because of the challenges of congestion and traffic, lack of adequate parking, and the impacts on neighborhoods and our limited resources in the beach municipalities, the City of Atlantic Beach is asking that the City of Jacksonville recognize the value of promoting public access to Hanna Park for people in vehicles, on bikes, and on foot by:
- Providing relief from entry fees for those who have served our Nation in the military, and for those in financial need; and
- Installing a bicycle/pedestrian gate at the park’s southwest boundary in Jacksonville, thus promoting multimodal public access to the trail system, park amenities, and beach.
This matter is on the City Commission's May 10, 2021 agenda.
