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

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.

Great walking or biking trail. The park is like stepping into an old growth forest with a number of state champion trees and palmetto undergrowth that leads you down to Mobile Bay.

Pretty boring unless you want to go off path next to a swamp and play Man and Wild and dare a gator or go into the brush and dodge a snake. Length of trail shorter than expected
