This is a beautiful, quiet spot. So glad I finally made it here. Entrance fee was $5 per car. The front area of the park is the formal gardens with pathways through the huge oaks and coy ponds. My sister got married here in the gazebo. Then there is a rose garden. Then there is an area along the intercoastal... More

Had a very relaxing afternoon at this state park. Beautiful setting and live oak trees, moss, ferns and other plant life. Not a lot of flowers to see in the formal garden in late March. Looks like roses would be out in the next couple weeks. Many people were fishing on the river. There are park benches there and we... More

THe landscaping is gorgeous. Great spot for a few hours to stretch your legs or picnic. If staying nearby, you can fit in a couple mile walk-job-bike through here and fishing off the waterway is allowed too.

A small botanical garden and Florida history rolled into one. The live oak trees, spanish moss, ferns, and other native species, have been preserved from a family homestead that was willed to the state of Florida. Beautifully maintained. The Matanzas river borders one side of the property and fishing allowed. There are trails, picnic areas, and a small gift shop... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon at WOG State Park. I especially enjoyed the formal garden, with citrus trees bearing fruit. Also enjoyed my stop at gift shop. Senior volunteers at front entrance and at gift shop were so very friendly. I know I will be back, when I return to FL, for another vacation. Thank you for maintaining such a... More

My wife and I spent a few hours at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park on March 10, 2014. We went there originally in order to hunt for shells in the park's beachfront zone. After a delightful time along the oceanfront, we decided to cross over A1A in order to visit the primary park property. We spent an amazing time walking... More

Nature is seen at it's best at "Washington Oaks Historic District" state park. If you are a nature gal or guy you will be intrigued by the beauty of this state park. Families with young children can enjoy this scenic self-guided experience however you will really want to keep your eyes on them when you are near the water areas.... More

The Park is simply beautiful and so peaceful! Visitors can take a leisurely, self-guided walking tour which highlights interesting historical features throughout the park. (A brochure is provided for reference). There are gardens, a koi pond, a nature trail and small gift shop. Even during February it was beautiful, so I can only imagine what it looks like when the...

A former winter residence that was gifted to the state. The park is a beautiful to go and wander through the gardens, take a hike on the trails, sit looking at the intracoastal waterway, or enjoying the ocean. Plenty of benches scattered throughout the gardens. A picnic area available in case you want to make a day of your visit.... More
