Clanzel Brown Park to Host New Sports Complex for Inner City Youth

The Jaguars Foundation presented the Clanzel T. Brown Boys & Girls Clubs with $200,000 toward the creation of a youth sports complex.

This lead gift for Phase II of the Clanzel T. Brown Boys & Girls Club will allow Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Florida to continue its transformation of this once-dormant city park in a vibrant youth sports complex.

The new Clanzel T. Brown Boys & Girls Club was extensively renovated to include state-of-the-art spaces such as a STEM and robotics lab, recording studio, art room, computer lab, and more.

After-school programming, such as organized team sports has proven to be a powerful alternative during the often-unsupervised afternoon hours, which suggests is when 29% of all violent crime committed by juvenile offenders occur.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation Youth Sports Complex is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.
