Great park for a walk and photos

Visited with my husband, 18 yr old daughter and our dogs last June. Lovely trails, just be careful by the pond/lake edges with any pets, caught a gator swimming around.

The 1.8 mile path winds around a forested area with a pond/stream? at the bottom. You cannot swim as it's posted for possible alligators. There are lots of side paths you can take off the main road that bring you back out to the road. Some are fun to explore - as we did. I would suggest wear bug spray... More

Morning walks are always a great way to start the day and an unexpected cool pleasure in the little central Florida city.

Ravine State Gardens is a beautiful spot to visit and spend some time enjoying nature. It is particularly lovely in the Spring when all of the flowers are beginning to bloom. The walk to the bottom of the ravine can be challenging and is not for someone who is mobility impaired, but the road that runs around the park is... More

My hubby and I have an annual pass for the Florida state parks and we come here all the time. There are trails in the ravines, a couple of suspension bridges, lots of picnic areas, beautiful scenery, lots of shade, plenty of places to take pictures, a nice little playground, a nice driving, walking, biking loop around the ravines and...

Ravine State Gardens is a hidden gem in Palatka! We love to roam the trails (esp when the azaleas are blooming) and is hilly enough to feel a little bit like back home up North.

My family and I (2 adults, 6 y/o and 22 y/o) visited Ravine state Gardens this past weekend! It was the best day we had!! Go in the morning during the summer, and don't drive the trail, walk it if you're able! Walked about 1/10 of a mile and found a set of stairs and never got back on the... More

We visited on a clear and sunny Saturday; there were two weddings going on. Despite the large amount of people there for them, we still had a wonderful time going down the 1.8 mile paved trail. The park closes this to motorists one hour before sunset so that those running, walking, and bicycling can do so without the worry of... More

Okay I have lived here for five years and recently decided to go to the Ravine's as the old school locals call it. It's a 1.8 mile drive around a huge I mean huge sink hole. Worth going to for the money I'm going to keep my opinion to myself in all fairness.
