The San Marco community is nestled just south of Downtown Jacksonville, along the St. John’s River as it bends and curves to the East.
This historic neighborhood is a vibrant community with a potpourri of architectural styles and lovely, tree-lined boulevards. San Marco, which gets its name from the Piazzo San Marco in Venice, Italy, has many landmark properties that preserve the history of the area. The San Marco Preservation Society ensures that the community’s historic integrity is honored.
San Marco Square, anchored with its ornately-made bronze lion fountain and gazebo, hosts an array of shops and nearby eateries, like Taverna and Bistro Aix, as well as Theatre Jacksonville. San Marco is a pedestrian friendly community with walking and biking paths, stately parks, and a diverse array of home styles. Waterfront mansions line River Road while renovated bungalows sit below sweeping trees. The quaint area called “The Duck Pond” with its lighted fountains and park benches provides hours of enjoyment for young and old alike.
