By providing access to thousands of free events celebrating our diversity within the themes of arts and culture, mind, body and spirit wellness, and community engagement, Unity Plaza will nurture Jacksonville and its’ people. Based on the successful models of Bryant Park in New York City and Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland, Unity Plaza, in collaboration with dozens of our region’s nonprofit organizations, will help fuel the revival recently ignited in Jacksonville’s urban core. According to Alex Coley, Unity Plaza land donor, “In their own individual ways, both Bryant Park and Pioneer Square are unique expressions of the communities that gave birth to them and both continue to reinvent and re- energize their cities every single day. There is a history and a journey associated with each of these special places including a vision, stewards and a collective will resulting in enhanced communities. Great cities all have these iconic places that provide the community with a venue for gathering and being their best.”
Unity Plaza opens April 1, 2015 with 365 days of activities for the entire family.
