Reserve Park is a City of Gainesville park honoring service members from all branches of the military and their families. Reserve Park was built on the property that was once the C. R. Layton United States Army Reserve Center; the property was transformed into a neighborhood park in 2019. The 257
Movement Control Battalion – known as the Movers and Shakers – occupied this 6.8-acre site for nearly 60 years, from 1951 until 2009.
The approximate cost of the park was $954,000. The Reserve Park project was funded through the Wild Spaces & Public Places half-cent sales tax, Reserve Park CIP fund and tree mitigation funding to support additional tree plantings in the park.
