Nassau County, Florida, September 20, 2019 – On Friday, September 27, 2019, the Board of County Commissioners will host a Ground Breaking Ceremony in celebration of the upcoming construction of Nassau Crossing Park.

- 2.5 miles of multi-use trails
- Boardwalks, nature trails and viewing platforms
- Multi-purpose sports field
- Children’s play equipment
