Ortega

Historic Homes of Ortega
Today, there are 597 historic buildings designated by the National Register of Historic Places.

Stockton Park
This iconic park of Ortega is named for John N. C. Stockton, president of the Ortega Company and a pillar of the community. The park is on the St. Johns River with spaces available for fishing, kayak/canoe launches and riverfront pavement (perfect for a waterfront stroll). Bring your gear or get some from nearby fishing supply stores like West Marine.

Seminole Park
This park offers beautiful views of the Ortega river, with docks that lead out onto the water. Trees throughout the park really give an “Old Florida” feel as you explore. Part of Ortega’s past is featured on a marker that tells the history of the notorious bandit Daniel McGirtt, an original Ortega resident.

Yerkes Park
Ortega is home to Yerkes Park, a triangular shaped park named for Captain Johnathan Yerkes Jr, son of local prominent Ortega family. This small park is populated with lush trees covered in Spanish moss with plenty of room for a family picnic.

Columbus Park
One of Ortega’s many circular parks, this is named after Christopher Columbus and the heavy Spanish influence in the Ortega neighborhood. Located in Ortega’s Historic District, the park is a beautiful spot to lounge and enjoy some of Jacksonville’s beautiful weather.

Bettes Park
This park is a great way to take in the oak trees and historic homes that surround the park. 360-degree views provide a great way to see some of the diverse architectural styles from the early 1900’s. This circular park named for local Charles Bettes, Stockton's partner in the development of Ortega.

Ortega Village
Once serviced by Jacksonville's electric trolley, Ortega Village was the hub of the early 20th century neighborhood.
Carter's Pharmacy has been a staple in the Village since 1955. The building is a step back in time in a modern area still features an old timey lunch counter. This pharmacy is still operating and serving the Ortega area, situated in the center of the neighborhood.

The Florida Yacht Club
Organized in 1876, the Florida Yacht Club served as a yachting and social attraction for winter visitors flocking to the South. The current location is the 3rd in the Florida Yacht Club’s existence after losing the first in the great fire of 1901 and expansion efforts that followed. Many events are held at this member-only club, such as regattas, weddings and social events.

Timuquana Country Club
In 1921, a group organized the Timuquana Country Club to create a golf course for the residents of Jacksonville. The club was named for the Timucuan tribe, local to the St. Johns River region. The club features a sprawling golf course, pool, docks, tennis courts and lounges for its members to enjoy.
