Twenty Mile Park is a new amenity center in the new Twenty Mile Village community. It will include a shallow-entry family swimming pool with lap lanes, Waggin’ Tails dog park, playground, athletic fields, open-aired pavilion and an event lawn.
Carved out of the natural environment, the oak-canopied park will remain home to native flora and fauna. Old-Florida accents throughout will complement the community’s rich history. Twenty Mile Park will be funded and constructed by The PARC Group, Nocatee’s Master Developer, and donated to the Nocatee CDD for the use of all Nocatee residents.
The location of the park will be nestled near the front of the Twenty Mile neighborhoods, and residents can anticipate an early 2016 opening.
Due to its strategic location—halfway between St. Augustine and historic Fort Caroline—the Twenty Mile area was center stage throughout much of Florida’s storied past. Spanish Admiral Pedro Menendez de Aviles first blazed a path in the area in 1565, as he and his men marched 40 miles from St. Augustine to claim Fort Caroline from the French. In the 1700s, a military outpost known as Twenty Mile House was established, serving as a “half way” station for soldiers and travelers.
The area’s rich history will be evident throughout the entire Twenty Mile area, and will include a display at the entrance to this unique Nocatee community of neighborhoods.
