This place was just so beautiful. It had a beautiful home with great history. It had a large rose garden and tons of fruit trees. It also has it's own beach. You could walk for hours around this place.

This is a Florida State Park and is absolutely beautiful any time of year. The beautiful oak trees are everywhere and they have a garden of roses and other plants. One side with the gardens is along the intracoastal waterway and the other side is Atlantic ocean front with huge coquina rock formations. Both sides are beautiful and quiet solitude... More

The gardens are very pretty and tranquil. Wandering them is wonderful. Across A1A, is the beach part of the gardens. It is not a beach for sunbathing or playing in the surf. There are beautiful rock formations and coquina rocks - large and small. Not your typical Florida beach, but beautiful to stroll on. So quiet and peaceful the day... More

Although it was chilly during our visit, the personnel was warm and friendly. The grounds are well maintained and sitting by the river was relaxing. The gift shop is very affordable and admission fee to the site is very reasonable.

I visited the park (garden and beach) for the first time on 3/24/12. I got engaged that day on the beach and then visited the garden after. The weather wasn't the greatest that day, but it didn't take away from the beauty of this great location. If you haven't been there yet, you should go and maybe make a day... More

Tired of Marineland, Disneyland, and the other lands? Our group spent a good portion of the day exploring this state park for $5 a carload and we loved it. What a great day walking the gardens, visiting the buildings, finding out about the Young family that once owned the property. The ocean beach with the Coquina rock formations was a... More

The gardens in the park are phenomenal, and there are many scenic spots for a wedding! My fiancée and I strolled the entire park looking for the perfect spot for our intimate wedding of 25 friends and family members. A surprise to us, the park extends across A1A to a good-sized dock overlooking a beautiful deserted stretch of beach, complete... More

Visited based on other reviews & so glad we did!! We did a quick tour of the formal gardens & were so happy to find a can of "Off" on a bench!! We were unprepared for the Mosquitos!! We enjoyed the southern trees/citrus...really beautiful! However, our favorite part of the park was the ocean side. We had a great walk... More

This is a wonderful place to stroll and look at the beautiful flowers. Pick a cool day and enjoy. Across the street from the ocean too.
