JMB Neighborhood and Mom Groups!

Introducing Neighborhood and Parenting Groups in Jacksonville!

Our primary goal in creating Jacksonville Moms Blog was to connect moms online, as well as offline through playdates and our events. Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the United States and we would like to make it feel a little smaller by creating neighborhood playgroups! Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our monthly meet-ups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area.

We currently have 14 neighborhood groups and 10 specialty groups available to join. Don’t see your neighborhood? We’re just starting this program so please let us know so we can get your area covered. Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group!

Current Neighborhood Groups:

Callahan/Bryceville/Hilliard Moms
Downtown/San Marco/St. Nicholas
Mandarin/Julington Creek
St. Johns/210
Orange Park/Fleming Island/Oakleaf
Riverside/Avondale/Ortega/Murray Hill
St. Augustine
Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island

JMB Expecting & New Moms
JMB Single Moms
JMB Homeschool Moms
JMB Working Moms
JMB Moms of Special Needs Children

This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your kids to make new friends and connections in our community! To stay up-to-date on all that Jacksonville Moms Blog has to offer, subscribe here to receive our blog posts by email, “like” our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter, Instagram (@jaxmomsblog), and Pinterest! We’re excited to check out your neighborhood and make our large community feel a little smaller!

    Is the San Marco FB group linked correctly? I can’t get the page to open for some reason (others worked for me)

    I am a music teacher, former lower-school music director of The Bolles School, who has started a music business through which I offer general music classes for preschoolers up through 5th-grade homeschoolers in several different areas of Jacksonville. I also offer private piano and guitar instruction. I have a website: and a Facebook page. Is there a way to spread information about what I offer on your blog?

      Unfortunately, the neighborhood groups are only on FB. It’s the easiest way for moms to get info about playdates and connect with other moms in the area…. We do post about bigger events on the website so please subscribe!

    Julington Creek – My son is almost 13 and an only child. We do not live in a neighborhood so finding friends to play with is tough!!! Are these groups for older children as well?? Any suggestions?
