Jacksonville is an unincorporated community located within Springfield Township, in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States.[2] Located at a skewed intersection of County Routes 628 and 670, the area consists of farmland, houses, and the remains of the Animal Kingdom Zoo, a small zoo shuttered since 2012 due to deadly fires and numerous animal welfare violations.[3][4]
