We found out the other day that some people at our church here in Charlotte used to live in JAX. They spoke glowingly about the Julington Creek area. However, it seems like there many neighborhoods that use Julington Creek in their name. When someone says JCP, are they talking about the whole area or a certain hood? It also looks like part of it is in Duval County and part is in St. John's, but I've read maps wrong before. THANKS

As far as I am aware, all of Julington Creek Plantation is located in St Johns County. From my observation, the different "hoods" will have a sign, that has JCP on it. If that particular parcel is subject to the JCP CDD, then it's JCP.

JCP is St Johns county, but there is an actual waterway named Julington Creek which is in kind of right on the line of both Duval and St johns county. So there are some adresses and hoods in Duval that may have the words Julington Creek in them. JCP srtictly st Johns though.
Hope this helps

fruit cove, fl - Google Maps

Go here on google maps.

Julington Creek Plantation is where it says "Fruit Cove" on the map. It's all the cul-de-sac development West of State Road 13 and along Racetrack Road. Julington Creek Plantation is basically a giant subdivision that started in the 1990s. It's middle-class, very new, very clean.

The original Julington Creek neighborhood is just to the North, within Jacksonville city limits. Jax doesn't have very specifically defined neighborhoods, but it's roughly where the map says "Julington Creek" and "Del Rio." This neighborhood is a bit older, with a lot of 1980s housing stock. It has everything from million dollar mansions to very modest starter homes.

Both areas have good schools and are very quiet suburban areas - with the expected traffic problems. For better or worse (depending on your perspective) JCP in St Johns county is much more sterile, since it was all mater-planned. You can tell that it's one giant development. The original Julington Creek isn't as cohesive.

I think you've got it right. "JCP" is "Julington Creek Plantation", a huge master-planned community, one of the oldest ones in NEFL (NorthEast Florida).

"JCP" is located inside the "Julington Creek Area". One can live in Julington Creek/Julington Creek area and not have to live in Julington Creek Plantation proper. In fact, there are some nice advantages to living in the vicinity of, but not inside of, the Plantation. For one, you can use many of the Plantation amenities even though you live outside of it. It's not all private, some of it is public (the library and schools, for example). Another advantage might be your lot size - there are some big pieces of property outside the Plantation.

Either way, it's a nice area. Mandarin, a large neighborhood of Jacksonville, is on the other side of Julington Creek. If you like the Julington Creek area, you'll probably like Mandarin as well .

Yes, there is. It's the last traffic light, heading South on San Jose, before you reach the Julington Creek bridge.
