History: Victoria Park is located in Southside along Barnes Road. Lovelace Park, Greenfield Elementary School (built in 1963) and Southside Middle School (built in 1959) adjoin the park. The Skinner Brothers Realty Co. deeded the property to Duval County in 1916. In 1955, the site was a 10-acre County park with numerous amenities, including a flowing well. Over the years, students and teams from the adjacent schools have utilized its facilities. The park is home to the River City Softball Association, which for many years has been a partner with the City in the improvement and maintenance of the property. The Association operates a program for hundreds of girls ages 5 through 18, and hosts softball tournaments that attract teams from across Florida and south Georgia.
