8 Flags Playscapes, Inc., a local non-profit, in partnership with the City of Fernandina Beach is proud to announce the opening of the new Egans Creek Park on April 29, 2017, at 4:00 p.m.

The mission of 8 Flags Playscapes is to enhance the community through the development of recreational environments that are universally accessible to all.

We invite you to be a part of this special occasion as we celebrate one of Amelia Island’s newest treasures.
