Jonesville, Florida facts for kids
Jonesville is an unincorporated community in Alachua County, Florida, United States. It is located at the intersection of County Road 241 and State Road 26 (Newberry Road). Jonesville has no city government but is an informal name for a region on Newberry Road between Gainesville and Newberry.
Over the years, Jonesville has become more populated as the city of Gainesville has continued to grow and residents have moved west towards less dense communities. Coinciding with the growth in the area population, Jonesville has seen an increase in relocation of businesses. Previously established companies, such as Sherwin-Williams, have been joined by new businesses in the commercial development in Town of Tioga, such as Starbucks and the Publix at Steeple Chase shopping plaza. Additional businesses are expected to move to the area with the development of commercial/office space at the intersection of Newberry Road and NW 140th Terrace.
The Jonesville Park provides local residents with baseball fields, a mile-long track, a disc golf course, tennis courts, soccer fields, and regular play. Future development of the park promises to include a nature center, an event lawn with numerous activities, a BMX track, nature trails, picnic areas, an amphitheater, and a recreation center with gymnasium, weight room and multipurpose rooms.
