History: Genovar Park is a 5-acre park located at 12810 Genovar Street in the Bayard section of Jacksonville. Genovar Park became the property of Duval County on September 1, 1954 when Willard Genovar, following the death of his mother, Lois Genovar, donated the 5- acre parcel to the county. The only stipulations to the donation were that Duval County develop the five acre lot specifically for park use and name the park after the Genovar family. An active park with one youth softball field and three basketball courts, Genovar Park contains playground equipment, a pavilion, picnic tables, several trash receptacles, and parking for ten vehicles.
