Downtown by the Numbers

How many people visit Downtown Jacksonville each year? How long is the Riverwalk? How many Downtown Ambassadors do we have?

Keeping Downtown Jacksonville safe, clean, friendly and lively is our goal at Downtown Vision. We thought it would be fun to share some of the numbers of Downtown’s people, places and events.
