History: Ray Greene Park is located in the Highlands section of north Jacksonville. The park opened in 1957, and quadrupled in size with the addition of 30 acres in 1976-77. It is named for former Duval County Commissioner C. Ray Greene Sr. (1892-1964), who served continuously from 1934 to 1962. A pharmacist who lived in Brentwood and operated the Brentwood Pharmacy, he said that his greatest satisfaction from public service was his work to prevent juvenile delinquency. An off-road bicycle course was built at the park in the early 1980ís, a major renovation completed in 1999, and a 2004 renovation includes two new soccer fields, two restroom/concession buildings, and two basketball courts, along with road paving, landscaping, and parking for 257 cars. Completed in 2007 is the addition of a restroom building that services the tennis courts and the playgrounds area.
