We liked the spacious and varied grounds. The gardens were not yet in full bloom but were well maintained and interesting. The beach part of this state park was also very interesting with the unusual rock formations.

The azaleas were in bloom and music in the air as we made an unplanned stop at the park. I'd been there in the past twice for photo shoots (once on each side of the camera) and wanted to share the park's beauty with my hubby. We were pleasantly surprised to arrive on the day of a musical event. The... More

We has just a few hours here. We went in the park, paid our fee, and were handed a map. The "toll taker" was told what we were looking for were the beach rocks, but he never did tell us that it was across the A1A HIGHWAY. The map they gave us is impossible to read for the first time... More

This is a beautiful park. If you're visiting the Saint Augustine or Daytona Beach area and you're from Canada or the northern States and you love gardens you owe it to yourself to visit. The formal garden is not that large but it's breathtaking. Whatever you do, don't forget your camera. Every photo will be beautiful.

Washington Oaks Garden state Park has one on the most beautiful gardens in the area. Frequently, people miss some of natures most beautiful things that many of the State Parks have. This is one to investigate.

We went here in February, so most of the flowers weren't blooming yet, and roses hasn't starting budding yet. The gardens and trees are beautiful! The koi pond and the gazebo area are so pretty.

Lovely shady walking trails among native plantings. The formal garden was not much in February. The roses bloom in early April but there were a few Rhodos out and camellia trees in bloom. The Young House is open and has some interesting written information on posters about the history of the place. The gift shop is beautiful and had some... More

This is a gorgeous walking venue with major Florida history being told along the way. I took an art class at WOG and loved every moment. Truly connecting with nature - everyone should have this experience. There have been many weddings done in the rose garden area. Absolutely lovely.
