Naval Air Station Jacksonville - Build Two Multi-Age Children’s Playgrounds & Upgrade Pavilion

NAS Jacksonville

The Armed Forces Families Foundation contributed approximately $36,805 to construct two large multi-age children’s playgrounds & rehabilitate the Pavilion in the Mulberry Cove Marina area of the Naval Air Station Jacksonville.  NAS Jacksonville employs over 23,000 active-duty military & civilian personnel, and encompasses over 3,800 acres along with St. Johns River.

The Marina at Mulberry Cove is currently operated by the Navy Morale, Welfare & Recreation (MWR), and is used to maintain & rent boats for military personnel & their families, and services 100+ personnel on a daily basis.  The new Playground Area features slides, climbing equipment and other age-appropriate features.  Additionally, the Pavilion Area, which is used for personal and command functions, was upfitted with new electrical, lighting & paint, new grills & a regulation horseshoe pit.  The renovation provides military personnel with an attractive facility to rest, relax, and enjoy picnics with their families, as well as a safe place for their children to play.  The project was completed in September 2012, with the ribbon cutting held in December 2012.
