From I-95 going North. Turn at Hecksher Drive exit #358A towards the Jax Zoo. Drive Hecksher all the way to I-295 interchange. Go under I-295. There will be a big GATE Gas station on your right.
Turn LEFT on New Berlin Rd. From either west or east, there is a brown park sign pointing the way to Pumpkin Hill State Park. Drive on New Berlin about 3.7 miles (you will pass the JEA Northside station and the Jacksonville Gun Club) until you come to Cedar Point Rd. Turn RIGHT go 4.6 miles (Darcy Rd) will be the last road sign on the right before you get to the park. Turn at Cedar Point Preserve Park sign on your right. If you see the Pumpkin Hill Park sign, you have gone too far.
There is a portable toilet at the parking lot. Plenty of parking.
I won't be able to stay for lunch, but for those who have more time to explore, I would encourage you to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy Tiger-Betz Park which is just about 10 minutes away.
