Situated on the junction of the Cedar and Ortega
Rivers just seven miles southwest of Jacksonville, Lakeshore
has numerous houses for rent. The residential southern part of this region lies closest to the river, while the majority of commerce can be found at Northside.
Criswell Park, in the northeast part of the neighborhood, welcomes athletic Lakeshore residents by offering facilities for baseball, basketball, and football. The park also has picnic shelters with several tables and some youth sports programs.
Residents can take a 15-minute drive north towards Downtown Jacksonville,
while enjoying the 20-mile stretch of beach lining the St. Johns River.
