City reopens Northside Park

Come out and enjoy the new Northside Park!

The City of Gainesville’s Wild Spaces & Public Places Program, the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department and the Rotary Clubs of Gainesville Foundation are thrilled to announce that the large renovation project at Northside Park is complete and the park is now open to the community. The park is located at 5701 NW 34 Blvd. adjacent to the Senior Recreation Center.


The new playground and multi-generational play area are ready for neighbors of all ages to enjoy! The “Generations Play Zone” includes outdoor games such as bocce ball, pickleball/tennis courts, pétanque, table tennis and checkers and chess. There is also a new terrace off of the Senior Recreation Center, large pavilions with grills, two new racquetball courts, shaded seating and a walking path with outdoor exercise equipment. Along with all the fun new amenities, 40 parking spaces have been added to accommodate those visiting the park and Senior Recreation Center.
