This is a lovely park with both a beachside park and an intracoastal park. There are lovely gardens with flowers, plants and awesome Live Oaks, a beach on the intracoastal where you can fish and trails and paths that are easy to walk with plenty of benches for resting. There are also trails to hike through the wooded areas on... More

This park is a gem. On the east side of the road you can enjoy the rocky beach with its orange sand. On the west side there are several areas to admire, including a lovely rose garden and a view of the intracoastal. We had our engagement photo shoot here and got some amazing photos. There are plenty of places... More

Located on A1A South, this park has a little bit of everything for everyone. Fishing; a 1.8mile loop trail for a walk among the oak trees; formal gardens; picnic areas with grills; a gift shop; visitor center; and even a playground for the kids. This park has a great history and has been lovingly preserved for the public to enjoy.... More

We visited with 3 generations and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Interesting history, easy strolls, and perfect for a picnic. Everyone enjoyed climbing on the rocks at the beach. Helpful and friendly staff at gift shop and greenhouse (reasonable and healthy plants for sale).

This place was just so beautiful. It had a beautiful home with great history. It had a large rose garden and tons of fruit trees. It also has it's own beach. You could walk for hours around this place.

This is a Florida State Park and is absolutely beautiful any time of year. The beautiful oak trees are everywhere and they have a garden of roses and other plants. One side with the gardens is along the intracoastal waterway and the other side is Atlantic ocean front with huge coquina rock formations. Both sides are beautiful and quiet solitude... More

The gardens are very pretty and tranquil. Wandering them is wonderful. Across A1A, is the beach part of the gardens. It is not a beach for sunbathing or playing in the surf. There are beautiful rock formations and coquina rocks - large and small. Not your typical Florida beach, but beautiful to stroll on. So quiet and peaceful the day... More

Although it was chilly during our visit, the personnel was warm and friendly. The grounds are well maintained and sitting by the river was relaxing. The gift shop is very affordable and admission fee to the site is very reasonable.

I visited the park (garden and beach) for the first time on 3/24/12. I got engaged that day on the beach and then visited the garden after. The weather wasn't the greatest that day, but it didn't take away from the beauty of this great location. If you haven't been there yet, you should go and maybe make a day... More

Tired of Marineland, Disneyland, and the other lands? Our group spent a good portion of the day exploring this state park for $5 a carload and we loved it. What a great day walking the gardens, visiting the buildings, finding out about the Young family that once owned the property. The ocean beach with the Coquina rock formations was a... More
