Mayport Park Temporarily Closed For Mile Point Navigation Project Construction

Officials have closed a Mayport park while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses it as a construction staging area. 

Helen Cooper Floyd Park, also know as “Little Jetties,” lies along the St. Johns River just west of Mayport Naval Station. The park will be closed for up to two years as the Corps of Engineers begins work on the Mile Point Navigation Project.

Tera Meeks, chief of the City of Jacksonville’s Natural and Marine Resources Division said, “They’ll be removing a little portion of the jetty to restore the natural flow of the water in that area.”
