Located on the south side of the St. Johns River in the heart of East Arlington, Hidden Hills is a gated community established in the 1970s. This suburban community gives residents access to the best Florida has to offer, with easy access to the beaches, riverfront, and downtown Jacksonville.
In addition to a community-owned playground and basketball courts, families enjoy the nearby Ed Austin Park that features baseball fields, a skate park, a dog park, and paved walking paths. Golfers will love the Hidden Hills Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer–designed course that covers more than 6,000 acres. The club also has a hall suitable for weddings, banquets, and other large gatherings.
The Arlington area is home to Fort Caroline, an early European settlement in Florida. Today, the Fort Caroline National Memorial keeps the memory of the settlement alive, and visitors enjoy exploring the nature trails and learning more about the people who originally lived there. Other attractions include the Ribault Monument, Spanish Pond, Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens and the Alhambra Dinner Theater, which offers Broadway-style live shows. Shoppers appreciate nearby shopping centers, including the popular St. Augustine designer outlet centers.
