Found this park on trip advisor. Based on the reviews, decided to stop. Very beautiful. You stroll along paths and see gardens and ponds. Great for nature lovers and got some great pictures. Across the street is the ocean which was beautiful as well. Coquina rocks on beach.

We were staying in the St. Augustine area for our family vacation last week. Since it is the rainy season a few days we actually hopped in our car and tried to follow the sunshine. When we arrived at the park it was overcast but we didn't care.....we needed to explore. We parked on the oceanside and we were the... More

What a gorgeous place to visit! There is a beautiful garden on one side of the park and an absolutely stunning beach on the other side. The beach has coquina rock formations that in some areas have formed into mini caves. Well worth the trip. I will definitely come back one day.

I live two hours away but feel drawn to this place a couple of times a year. The park is divided-one half is a coquina rock beach (very unusual for Florida) and across the road is the other half, land donated to the state by the Young family, relatives of George Washington. The Youngs had a home here as a... More

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

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.
