History: Baker-Skinner Park is located across Powers Avenue from Wolfson High School. The property was purchased in January 1994 from the descendants of dairyman, A. C. Skinner, Sr. The park was named after A. C. Skinner and Dick Baker, president of the Northeast FL Builders Association and winner of the Associationís 1993 leadership award. Both Baker and Skinner were honored because of the time and money they, and their families, donated to the development of Jacksonville parks. Today the park features 2 t-ball fields and four baseball fields, picnic areas, a nature and jogging trail, playscapes, security lights and parking.
