The South Riverside community of Jacksonville, FL is known for its artsy character, eclectic charms, and historical significance. Both modern and rustic, it is situated along St. Augustine Road, nestled between Hendricks Avenue, Emerson Street, and Philips Highway.
With a population of just roughly 2,300 people, South Riverside is considered a walkable neighborhood. Coupled with its small-town vibe and close proximity to downtown Jacksonville, South Riverside is an ideal place to live for the person who craves both quiet and convenience.
Part of Jacksonville’s “Southside,” South Riverside includes the nineteenth century rural Phillips neighborhood, as well as some of the more modern areas of San Marco. This combination results in a diverse range of residential homes with varying architectural styles from different eras. This mixture of homes results in a wide assortment of home values.
The historical Phillips community is home to the 140-year-old Philips Craig Swamp Cemetery, where you can take a trip back in time as you walk past the nineteenth century gravestones. Also in the area is Angelina Danese Park, the public neighborhood park, perfect for a relaxing day beneath the trees.
South Riverside is also home to several churches, including the quaint Philips Congregational Church, and the more modern Southside Church of God Christ and Iglesia Bautista Hispana.
For the shopping enthusiast, head to “The Square” in San Marco, where shopping, dining, and entertainment options are abundant.
