BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Bouquets to Jacksonville Resident Wayne Wood

Posted

Bouquets to Jacksonville resident Wayne Wood for his 20 years of working on connecting people to the St. Johns River through the Riverwalk and Riverside Arts Market. Wood, an optometrist, historian and founder of Riverside Avondale Preservation, said plans to put the market under the Fuller Warren Bridge involved 12 government agencies. He proved that persistence pays off and said the Riverside Arts Market is the largest free outdoor weekly arts and entertainment venue in Florida. The recently approved extension of the Northbank Riverwalk was a part of his grand vision many years ago.
