City Proud of Pomar Park Improvements

Since its opening six years ago this month Joseph Pomar, Jr. Recreation Facility has become a very important addition of our community’s quality of life. Over the years the use of both Joe James Softball Field and the multipurpose field that is often used by area football and soccer teams has grown steadily.

On Friday, September 6, City officials, gathered with city employees and residents to celebrate what Pomar Park means to St. Augustine and to celebrate the opening of new features at the park: a majestic gazebo, a 130’ boardwalk that extends out over the marshlands of the San Sebastian River offering a panoramic view of the city’s skyline, new sidewalks, additional landscaping and more parking.

The new improvements were largely financed by a grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, through the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program in the amount of $100,000, but most of the labor came from employees of the City of St. Augustine.

In his remarks at the ribbon cutting, Mayor Mark Alexander recognized those employees.

"On behalf of the City, I want to thank all those involved in this project, including those working in the Public Works Department and the Utilities Departments for their tremendous effort and all their hard work. They always work hard, but they put a lot of extra effort into this project," said Alexander.

Mayor Alexander invited former St. Augustine Mayor Greg Baker to join other commissioners in cutting the ribbon to officially open the park’s new features. Baker was the mayor at the time the city originally opened the park in 1996.

Pomar Park is located off Masters Drive, just south of the intersection with State Road 16. The park is open daily.
