Nocatee Community Park


ELM served as the recreation planners, architects and landscape architects for the 75-acre Nocatee Community Park located in the heart of Nocatee and serving as an important link to the community’s neighborhoods, menities and roadways. The Community Park includes multi-purpose playfields, a concession building, a dog park, recreational trails, tennis courts and community parking.

The park includes nine sports fields, totaling approximately 30 acres, to accommodate activities such as soccer and flag football for a variety of ages. The 3,000-s.f. open-air concession center was designed in a classic Florida vernacular, creating a casual gathering place for food and beverage services as well as picnics and social gatherings. An extensive series of greenways, trails and boardwalks were designed to weave through the neighborhoods and the natural areas within Nocatee, providing residents with biking, jogging or walking access to the park and other areas of the community.

Construction Observation

There’s nothing like it in Northeast Florida, or the state, for that matter. It’s been extremely well received. It is a very high-quality amenity, with beautiful architecture. It’s not often that a designer has the opportunity to do something on that grand a scale, and they did a great job of taking it from concept to reality. And it’s not a static, finished project; we have the flexibility to add things in the future.
