A treasure....formal gardens complete with decorative ponds and bridges and a circular rose garden in the middle of real Florida Flora that is so green given proximity to Ocean. Former home of Young...a past CEO of GE whose wife was a self-made millionaire at age 19. Their modest home is a local museum. AS you leave the park, go across... More

We went on the state park’s ranger’s tour of the coquina rock beach at the Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. It was a great tour! Coquina is a soft rock made of ancient marine reefs and limestone and it is found in only few places – a few sites on the southern coast of the United States and in New... More

This is a Florida State Park that is split in half by A1A. On the east side is the beach with clear waters, natural coquina formations and great place to body board! On the west side is a botanical garden, and SEVERAL picnic pavilions around a playground with charcoal grills available for use. There is also a trail to the... More

You get old Florida nature feel and still be near a beach...as a matter of fact the beach is across the street.

We stopped here for our daughter who loves flowers. This is a nice small park with a small garden. Unfortunately, the roses were roped off. Since it was early spring, a lot of things were not in bloom. Still, it was pretty and a nice escape from all the tourist attractions.

If you are in Central Florida and want a good family outing, without all the crowds and dollars, take a drive on I95 and see Washington Oaks State Park. The park is between the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River. Make sure to pack a lunch then walk or bike the trails of the beautiful park. The property was once... More

We had a wonderful time taking in the lush scenery! The rose gardens are beautiful! I loved the swampy little pavilion area. We saw a lot of small wildlife!

Lovely gardens meandering along the intercostal. A great location to just relax and enjoy nature, maybe a picnic.

What a lovely surprise. About 12 miles north of the center of Flagler Beach, this park features beautiful gardens. There are also a small series of nature trails that are winding, shady, and quite pretty. Mulch/leaf covered as well as pebbled terrain made for easy walking though this would be a challenge for anyone in a wheelchair. The lush gardens... More
