Jacksonville Beach (June 30, 2021) – NRP Lease Holdings, Inc., the owner and operator of the Adventure Landing amusement park located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, is being required to close its Jacksonville Beach location at the end of October 2021 due to the termination of the lease by the new property owner, JB Fair Park MF, LLC. The property was recently sold to JB Fair, who has announced a plan to develop the property for a 427-unit apartment complex with an accompanying 854 parking spaces. If the City of Jacksonville Beach approves the plan proposed by JB Fair, then Adventure Landing will complete its summer season through October 31, 2021. NRP Lease Holdings, Inc.’s additional twelve parks located in various states throughout the country will continue to operate and are unaffected by the sale of the Jacksonville Beach property.
