This park is stunningly beautiful, the adjacent beach is so unique and teeming with sea life. You could easily spend an entire day or weekend wandering here. There are great hiking trails and the garden is lovely. The picnic area is the ideal place to stop and enjoy some local take out BBQ or fire up a grill and enjoy.

Went to the park today and had a fabulous time walking the grounds and having a picnic lunch. About 3 1/2 miles of flat trails thru lovely "jungle" area. Paths were easy to traverse and well maintained. The live oaks and palmettos were beautiful. There were spiders, no webs we got tangled in, but they added an extra layer of... More

We truly enjoyed our visit to this state park. The gardens were gorgeous! Then we went across ghe street to view the Coquina rock formations on the ocean side! The staff was very helpful.

It is a nice place to visit. We enjoyed walking on the trail and down old A1A. The big spiders were a little bit unnerving to me so we finished our walk down the old A1A way. (Didn't see spiders in gardens etc just down the paths were there hadn't been foot traffic) Great location to get really good photos.... More

Interesting bit of old Florida history. The grounds are lovely and the beach area across A1A has some very interesting coquina rock formations.

The gardens had nice paths going through them as well as a good map that was freely provided for navigation in the parking lot. The huge, old trees provided cool shade from the hot sun and the ponds were gorgeous. My favorite was the rose garden which had all sorts of tall, colorful blooming roses in it. *The home, (which...

I visited this park while staying at Daytona Beach. This was my first visit and it was a wonderful experience. There is a small visitor center explaining the history of the area and how the park was established. The formal gardens are the highlight with well laid out loop paths and an excellent brochure. There are hiking and bike trails,... More

We went on a very windy day & the waves were crashing on the rocks. This made it great for photos. Nature is amazing how it stacked these rocks. This is not a man made formation, its sea made. This is part of Washington Oaks park so we had a nice picnic across the way in the park. Great place... More
