NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – GreenPointe Developers, LLC, in partnership with the Nassau County Board of Commissioners, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Tributary Park, a Nassau County Regional Park.
Tributary Park is located on Edwards Road, just west of Interstate 95. The new public park is adjacent to the community of Tributary, a master-planned, mixed-use community located in one of the area’s fastest-growing corridors.
“Tributary Park will be a wonderful addition to the Nassau County community park system and a place where residents and visitors can gather, play and enjoy nature,” said Grady Miars, President, GreenPointe Communities. “In partnership with Nassau County, we have truly outstanding park designs and we are creating a place where the community can enjoy recreational pursuits and connect with Tributary’s exceptional natural surroundings.”
GreenPointe Developers donated more than 40 acres to Nassau County for conversion into a community park for use by residents and businesses. Tributary Park will be a new regional complex for sports fans and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. The new park will feature baseball and multi-purpose fields, concessions, a multi-purpose trail, and a future dog park. Completion of the park’s first phase is anticipated in 2021.
Board of County Commissioners Chairman Danny Leeper stated, “We are excited to welcome another GreenPointe Community to Nassau County. Not only are their communities aesthetically pleasing with exceptional architectural styles and landscaping, their communities also offer an array of amenities. Tributary Regional Park will truly have something for everyone and we are excited to partner with them on this project.”
The community of Tributary has been thoughtfully planned to highlight the community’s premier location and geographical features. Tributary will include residential neighborhoods offering resort-style amenities, dog park, a comprehensive trail system, neighborhood parks with riverfront access, commercial and office space, and approximately 3,200 home sites. In addition to building a park and preserving a significant portion of the community’s uplands and wetlands, GreenPointe will be donating a site for a Nassau County public school and building a fire station.
District Five Commissioner Justin Taylor echoed Chairman Leeper’s comments adding, “I am thrilled to partner with GreenPointe Communities to construct much needed recreational space for current and future residents. Because of the thoughtful planning that took place, there is a clear and explicit phasing schedule for these improvements. It’s great to partner with developers who share our vision.”
