Balis Park, San Marco, Jacksonville FL was photographed on July 11, 2009. Balis Park is located in the middle of The Square at San Marco – a commercial district in south Jacksonville. Sheffield and his wife Abla Balis were longtime residents of San Marco, and Mrs. Balis funded the park’s development, in memory of her husband who passed away in 1976. The dedication ceremony took place in January 1988, and later improvements included a sound system, the bronze sculpture Windy Days, and landscaping, which were funded by the estate of Abla Balis and the City.
