    At Skate Station, kids choose their own day of fun and adventure. Four main attractions fill the fun center, where kids and families spend hours making making memories. Wally's Playground features a two-story, 30-foot soft play area with a plenty of colorful apparatuses to climb, roll through, and swing on. In the Swamp Golf area, kids display their mini-golf skills as they putt their way along the holes in search of a chest of pirates' gold. The fun also turns old-school at the roller rink filled with pop music and colorful lights, as well as in the arcade where kids try their skills at sports- and adventure-themed video games.

  • Huguenot Memorial Park
    Existing at the crossroads of the St. John’s River, the Ft. George Inlet, and the Atlantic Ocean, this park acts as a water-lover's paradise. Catch some waves on a surfboard or fish off the port side of a sailboat while watching the water's rolling blue, or stay dry by picnicking on the sand. Cars can even drive right onto the beach so passengers needn't haul their gear far for a day on the shore.

  • The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens
    Cummer Museum's nearly 5,000 works of art range from 2100 BCE to the 21st century. Here, Rubens rubs shoulders with Rockwell, Degas, and Sargent, while keeping a respectful distance from a major holding of early Meissen porcelain. Equally gorgeous are the facility's 2.5 acres of historic gardens along the St. Johns River, complete with a possibly 200-year-old oak.

  • Baja Buggyz
    Baja Buggyz puts kids behind the wheel of their very own vehicle?though parents needn't worry. The driving here all happens within the safe confines of a tire-lined dirt track. For an extra layer of metaphorical padding, staffers can adjust the speed of those vehicles depending on each driver's age and skill level. As for the vehicles themselves, think off-road go-karts?complete with roll cages?that can hit speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. Surrounded by trees and one out-of-work horse, kids and adults alike race over the hills and around the turns of Baja Buggyz' track. Folks can even bring along a friend to join them in the buggies' passenger seat. Between non-competitive races around the dirt track, drivers can take their repose in shady pavilion areas.

    Tree Hill Nature Center is hidden within Jacksonville's urban landscape.

  • Kona Skate Park
    At Kona Skate Park, smooth concrete undulates, dips, and banks like a frozen ocean. Skaters navigate those contours armed with helmets and bags of tricks such as kickflips and ollies. After zigging and zagging around cement bowls and valleys, they grab some air on the ramps and half-pipes. Street skating obstacles such as low wooden boxes and steps provide opportunity for slick grinds and rail slides. The park opened in the late 1970s, and all of its elements, including the verts protruding from the concrete basins, are infused with history. Kona Skate Park was the original meeting place for legends such as Tony Alva and Rodney Mullen, and today it's the site of burgeoning skateboarders. To nurture the talents of those future stars, instructors lead lessons and camps geared toward kids of all skill levels.
