History: Fort Caroline Club is located in the Fort Caroline Club Estates neighborhood of north Arlington, adjacent to the St. Johns River and the Lonnie Wurn Boat Ramp. Wurn-Arlington Construction Co. began developing the subdivision in 1958, and built a recreation building, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a play area on the property, which was sold in 1962 to the neighborhood association, Fort Caroline Club, Inc. Excluding the recreation building (clubhouse), the Club signed an agreement with the City in 1984 allowing use of the other recreation facilities by the general public, and then sold all of the property to the City in 2001. For over 35 years the Club has been the home of the Flying Fish Swim Team, which is open to children from 4 to 18 years of age. The community center, surrounded by attractive trees and with a panoramic view of the river, provides recreational activities for the public during the day from Monday thru Friday.
