Nelmar Terrace Park
Creation of the Park
Thanks in part to many individuals and groups in the neighborhood, a previous city right-of-way which ends at Hospital Creek is now a pocket park with a scenic vista for the Nelmar Terrace neighborhood. The pocket park was a vision of the Nelmar Terrace Neighborhood Association in 2007 when the association applied for and received a neighborhood grant in the amount of $2,000 from the City of St. Augustine. Individuals from the association and Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind contributed time and further funding for the walkway which leads to the Hospital Creek scenic vista and flower beds located on the south side of the passive park.
