COMBINING QUALITY CRAFT BREWING WITH THE EXCITEMENT OF SPORTS! Originally built in 1938 as a service station, the building at 9th and Main reflects a bit of the Art Deco style of the times with its curved front windows. It has sat empty until 2009, waiting for someone with the vision to return it to use. Now, Strings Sports Brewery is born! Stay tuned for new developments as the project progresses!

Listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, Riverside & Avondale is one of Jacksonville’s oldest and coolest neighborhoods. Voted as one of the country’s top 10 Great Neighborhoods, Riverside & Avondale have a unique mix of history, culture, charm, and modern design--find out more information through Riverside Avondale Preservation Society. This is a hip part of town with a young population. Million dollar waterfront homes and upscale apartment buildings are the norm, but there is nothing pretentious about the area, instead the vibe here is that of community, urban living, and keeping it local.

The park’s official name is Yacht Basin Park but most locals call it Mom’s Park. Yacht Basin Park is located in Riverside on the west bank of Willowbranch Creek, where it enters the St. Johns River. “The City purchased the property in 1921, and Jacksonville’s oldest social organization, the Florida Yacht Club established in 1877, resided adjacent to the site from 1907 till 1928. Eventually the City’s Water Services Division (taken over by JEA in 1997) placed a pump station at the site, and JEA renovated the park in 2001 with landscaping, lighting, and the construction of a gazebo and a brick-paved plaza and walkway.”
