We enjoyed an 8 am stroll through this park and were the only people there (with the exception of a fisherman on the pier). It was very quiet and had a nice mix of woods and views along the bay (The park connects to Bayshore Park). There are some spectacular "state champion" trees and the historic Jackson Tree Live Oak...

This was great surprise today. I live here in Daphne,Al. area and this last month of summer before school starts my family and I have been exploring attractions near us for day trips. Stopped here and spent day cooking on grill provided by park and picnic tables located under a pavilion with nice bathrooms near by. Great trails there leading... More

Very nice walking trail if you want to see a lot of nature. Ends up down by the bay. Beautiful! We took our dogs down there and it was a great place for them to stretch their legs!

The parking lot doesn't look like much and the service road in isn't particularly scenic but ... there are some neat finds here, including the Jackson Oak and some burial grounds. You can also take the path all the way down to a public pier and take a boardwalk over to Bay Front Park.

My husband and I stopped at the park today and walked through it. The only thing we couldn't find was the "Primitive Burial Grounds." We did enjoy everything we did see and since we live close by, we will be returning. If you get a chance to go, by all means, do so. It is still somewhat a "work in... More

I am a history geek, so I was psyched at the idea to go see the Jackson Tree. Unfortunately, my experience was not exactly what I expected, especially reading the reviews posted on here prior to my excursion. My outdoor experiences have included all sorts of creatures in Mother Nature, but this park was like a horror flick! The signs... More

Village Point on Scenic Hwy 98 has covered picnic pavilion with tables and restroom facilities. A nice walk through the woods recently planted with more native trees brings one to an ancient Oak tree and an old family cemetery from the 1700s. This wide trail through the woods connects with a boardwalk and trail ending at the bay. There is... More

Time to pull into village point park and walk all the way to the bay. Venture off to the boardwalk to the right and maybe see a gator. Come back on the board and keep going to the beach boardwalk. Back up the hill be sure to take in the cemetary and be thankful you are still vertical, then it's... More

I'm local and this park is worth seeing. Its a great place to get next to wildlife, particularly water birds.

Have ben here many times to walk or bird. Good bathrooms. Don't miss the old cemetary or Jackson's Oak. Walk all the way down the hill to the bay. Bug spray may come in handy.
