When you love Jacksonville and live in Clay County

As a working mother of 3 children between the ages of 3 to 9, I look forward to evenings and weekends when we get to spend time together. Attending a Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp Minor League Baseball game and enjoying some time outdoors at one of our favorite parks- Clarke House Park in Orange Park are  a couple of our favorite things to do in and around town.

If you’ve never attended a Minor League Baseball game, you’re in for a treat! It’s such a family fun environment and budget friendly! $5 per person will get you  general admission tickets and be able to enjoy a AA affiliate of the Miami Marlins! Every Friday night home game is Friday Family Fireworks where they put on a fantastic firework show after the game! Sundays are known as  “Sunday Family FUNday” and you can enjoy a game of catch with your children on the field before the game. Sundays also feature FREE face painting, balloon animals and much more directed at Fun for the Entire FAMILY! After the game, let your kids run off some energy as they run the bases at The Baseball Grounds. For more information- click here to visit the Shrimps website.

With the weather warming up outside, picnics in the park are a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon (or morning if you prefer the cooler weather). Historic Clarke House Park in Orange Park is a great place to visit. This park is more than just a playground, it’s a historic landmark! This beautiful park features a large “castle themed” playground, sand volleyball court, nature trails, gardens, lakes, pavilions and much more! Do you have a birthday party or a family event you’re wanting to hold outdoors? The park is a favorite spot for birthday parties and they have pavilions available to be rented.
