8 Flags Playscapes, Inc. is excited to share this photo of the new Simmons Park, currently in the final stages of construction. The first phase, including a one-quarter mile long universally accessible ADA compliant nature trail, a nature pavilion, ADA compliant restroom facilities, and associated parking for vehicles and bicycles should be open to the public soon. This collaboration with the City of Fernandina Beach will provide a much needed recreational space for families living in this long-neglected and quickly-expanding area of our community. Once the first phase is fully operational, we will be turning our attention to the second phase, which will include the universally accessible nature-themed playground and educational component of the park.
