The Emerald Necklace

Groundwork’s mission is to build and connect Jacksonville’s Emerald Necklace, an idea championed by famed architect Henry Klutho in the early 20th Century. When complete the Emerald Necklace will encompass approximately 19-miles of new trails, greenspace, parks and waterways that encircle the urban core and link at least 14 neighborhoods and downtown to Hogans Creek, McCoys Creek, the S-Line Rail Trail and the Northbank and Southbank riverwalks.
