ADA/Handicap parking

In Atlantic Beach and in most circumstances in Florida,  people with displayed handicapped-parking credentials are allowed to park for free up to four (4) hours in any public parking space -- in addition to spaces specifically designated for handicapped parking. Parking spaces can be at a premium, so it may be especially helpful to know where the spaces specifically designated for handicapped parking are. In Beaches Town Center, there are three public ADA spaces along the streets of Atlantic Beach. In Neptune Beach, there are nine ADA spaces in Beaches Town Center. Here's a map identifying the locations of those 12 ADA spaces.

Hanna Park

  • City Commission discussion on promoting public access to Hanna Park May 10, 2021
    • Because of the challenges of congestion and traffic, lack of adequate parking, and the impacts on neighborhoods and our limited resources in the beach municipalities, the City of Atlantic Beach is asking that the City of Jacksonville recognize the value of promoting public access to Hanna Park for people in vehicles, on bikes, and on foot by:
    • Providing relief from entry fees for those who have served our Nation in the military, and for those in financial need; and
    • Installing a bicycle/pedestrian gate at the park’s southwest boundary in Jacksonville, thus promoting multimodal public access to the trail system, park amenities, and beach.
    • This matter was on the City Commission's May 10, 2021 agenda.

Shoreline protection program parking eligibility

Duval County beach property owners and visitors have been the beneficiaries of federally funded shore protection projects for decades. Most recently, following back-to-back Northeast Florida hurricanes, the City of Jacksonville and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Jacksonville District expedited beach clean-up, land and sea surveys, contracts, and construction work along the Duval County beach shoreline, including Atlantic Beach. The goal of engineered shore projects is to reduce risk and promote coastal resilience. Shore protection projects help to reduce the damages - economic, environmental, infrastructure, human health and safety - of tropical storms and hurricanes. Thousands of residents and businesses in Duval County benefit from these shore project because storm events erode the beach rather than destroying coastal infrastructure.  Coastal communities with engineered beaches have historically fared much better than other communities as proven by numerous studies. Along with providing economic stability and opportunities, shore protection projects also have inherent benefits in restoring critical habitat for shorebird and marine turtle nesting. The first Duval County project shore protection project was in 1978-80 and since then, seven principal beach renourishment and dune restoration projects occurred, in addition to periodic placement of sand dredged from navigation projects.
