Playground at Lake Wonderwood Trail Project
Mayport Naval Station
Jacksonville, Florida – November 24, 2016
At Mayport Naval Station, the AFFF has donated $30,000 for the purchase of playground equipment to be a part of the Lake Wonderwood Trail Project. This park/trail is a recreational development surrounding the 22-acre man-made lake on the Base. The trail includes a continuous pathway around the lake with a series of pavilions, playgrounds, picnic areas, grill areas, and fitness stations. It benefits over 7,000 sailors and 800+ families that live on Base.
While this project enriches the overall lives of the local Navy families, it provides specific benefits. Those benefits include: supporting the Navy’s health and fitness mission, providing a safe environment to exercise and learn about Florida’s natural systems and diversify opportunities to expand the notion of community. Overall, the Lake Wonderwood Multi-Use Trail promises to be an amenity suited for countless hours of family and community health and recreation for years to come.
