Confederate Point Neighborhood in Jacksonville, FL
Confederate Point Neighborhood
A neighborhood on the city’s southwest side with around 300 single-family homes and a few condo and apartment complexes, Confederate Point is popular because it’s close to the water (south bank of the Cedar River) and downtown, which is just four miles away. Confederate Point is contained by the Ortega River on the east, Blanding Boulevard on the west, Cedar River on the north, and Timaquana Rd. on the south.
Built in the 1960s on reclaimed lowlands, Confederate Point, with its mature trees, varying home design styles, and open neighborhoods, is the antithesis of the modern Florida gated community, dominated by similar looking homes with identical color schemes. What makes Confederate Point unique from an access and security standpoint is that there is only one road in or out of the community. You could describe it as a small island with one small bridge as access.
Apartments and condos line the water in Confederate Point. Multi-family units line the shore of the Cedar River (called Cedar Creek by locals), while single-family homes are situated inland.
If you live in Confederate Point, you don’t have to travel far to find a barbecue restaurant. Sonny’s Real Pit Bar B-Q and Bonos Pit BQ and Catering are both located in the nearby Cedar Hills area. The most popular chain restaurant in the neighborhood is Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar, also in Cedar Hills.
The biggest attraction in the area is Adventure Landing on Blanding Boulevard, where two 18-hole miniature golf courses, laser tag indoor arena, arcade with 100 interactive games and a quarter-mile go-kart track are the appeal. Residents in the neighborhood and other parts of Jacksonville regularly use Adventure Landing for birthday parties, group outings, special events and school programs.
