New Ways to Enjoy the St. Johns River

New Ways to Enjoy the St. Johns River

As we enjoyed our walk along the St. Johns River in Spring Park the other day, we noticed some new additions!

The City of Green Cove Springs has been exceptionally busy th is summer! There, along the river walk, placed at convenient intervals, were these amazing swings inviting us to sit a spell and enjoy the cool river breeze.  Now the temptation to rest and let our cares just slip away was way too hard to resist that warm September day.  

Not only that but behind us was a new beach volley ball court that they had just finished! At first a large hole was excavated and then for several weeks I had been seeing loads and loads of clean white sand being brought in.

Now, with the project complete, the next River Park Inn purchase will be a volleyball to have on hand for our guests.

Beach Volleyball

In the evening you will find cool breezes and a chance to get acquainted with the locals on the fishing pier and maybe even catch something yourself.


There is plenty of old fashioned free fun for all here on the St. Johns River. So be our guests at River Park Inn and try some riverfront beach volleyball, cool down on one of those delightful swings along the river walk and get acquainted with the local fishing pier.
