History: Lonnie C. Miller Sr. Regional Park is located in northwest Jacksonville. The original 101-acre site (which was expanded by 25 acres in 2000) had been owned by the Price/Ellis families since before the Civil War, until the City purchased the tract in 1991. Opened in December 1995, the park was named for Detective Lonnie Miller (1933-1995), a highly regarded 26-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office who was killed in a robbery attempt. Known for his work with the children of the community, Mr. Miller also served on the local Democratic Executive Committee and on the National Council of Negro Women and Associate Men. A portion of Lonnie Miller Regional Park is fenced off due to environmental concerns.
