This is a great park where you can see 'old' Florida style, the old main road goes through exactly as it was 60-70 years ago. There is a lot of nature and there is the park itself. A little gem hidden away from the main track. And don't forget the sand stones on the beach on the other side of... More

We stopped by spur of the moment many years ago on a trip to Florida. We have been there many times since. This park is great. The intracoastal waterway on one side, and a beautiful beach that is like no other that we have seen in Florida. The beach has numerous rock formations, something you don't see much of in... More

The grounds are well kept and absolutely beautiful. About once a month we take the kids here to walk around and spend some time together. Would make a great place for a picnic!

We had a wonderful visit here while on vacation. Beautiful gardens so relaxing. Also, we went across the road to the beach area. There are beautiful rock formations there.

Driving down A1A we decided to stop in there seemed to be a lot of positive publicity about the gardens. Personally quite disappointed. The overall formal gardens were in need of a little TLC. There was also stagnant water which stunk to high Heaven. There are nice plantings and the rose garden and although small it could be lovely oasis... More

After seeing this park listed as something even native Floridians weren't aware of, I had to make a pilgrimage to see it ~ because I'm a native, and I hadn't heard of it! My girls (11 and 8) and I grabbed snacks, sunscreen, and bug spray, and we drove an easy 2 hours to the park. Note to visitors: There's... More

My vote is 3.5/5, to be exact. We loved this place, a lush and secluded oasis of peace whose gates lie just off what used to be the old A1A back in the 50's. The Washington Oaks Gardens, the history of which you should look into, are really pretty and worth the visit: the site consists of two sections, one... More

Nice view of the Intracoastel waterway. A very pleasant area, many photo opportunities. Walking on the coquina rocked beach is a real experience.

Beautiful place to spend a couple hours. Beautiful walking trails, wildlife, coquina beach, history. We visited twice on a week long vacation. Next time we come to the area we would probably go back with a picnic lunch.

Basically, unheard of and unknown, but well worth a visit. The formal gardens are divine and so many spots to peacefully read or meditate :) Also, the gardens are a heavenly spot for a wedding. Playground area for kiddos with plenty of covered picnic tables//big & small grills. I personally liked the historical aspect of the whole place...originally owned by... More
