Located on the westbank of the St. Johns River, Green Cove Springs has served as the Seat of Government for Clay County, FL since 1871. For the last decade, this quaint rivertown has experienced a resurgence with millions of dollars of city projects changing the face of the city. In 2016, a City Pool was reconstructed along with the construction of a new two-story pavilion housing new bathrooms, a concession area, splash pad, walkways, wheelchair ramps, and new railings. Also popular to Green Cove, is the Third Saturday Market in the Park, a farmers and arts market that has become a hit among the locals. In the heart of historic downtown, you can find Clay County’s Green Cove Springs Branch Library. The amazing library staff, under the leadership of long term manager Jennifer Parker, hosts a plethora of activities, programming, events, and outreach services to all ages and provides the epitome of southern hospitality the moment you walk through the door. With riverfront homes, and newly constructed communities, Green Cove Springs is an ideal place for those who want southern charm and good ol fashioned southern hospitality.
