Jacksonville city parks could soon be hosting more events and getting some upgrades under a National Park Service partnership unveiled Thursday.
Jacksonville is one of 10 cities selected for the Park Service’s Urban Agenda Initiative.
It’s a list that includes New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston and Philadelphia.
"And I love it that we beat Chicago," Mayor Alvin Brown joked. "That’s what I love.”
Brown announced Jacksonville’s selection as an Urban Agenda Model City at downtown’s Confederate Park.
