Finding the park was sort of tricky- just be sure to put the entire address into whatever map device you use or it could put you in a different part of the park! After arriving the gardens are fantastic. The trees are ancient and the house is beautiful. The tour of the house isn't necessary, I would recommend it if... More

It is apparent the state has put many dollars into Eden Park which will enhance your experience there, such as picnic tables, walk ways, reworked the large reflection pond with a fountain. Peaceful place to visit and awesome place for photography!

A beautiful park nestled on the bay side. It is gorgeous, very peaceful, and great views. Nice walking trails. Plenty of picnic tables. An amazing plantation home for a very scenic view. Nice bathrooms, water fountains, and good shaded parking. If you are in the area skip the beach for a quiet walk in the woods.

Magnificent live oaks in a gorgeous setting. House was not open Wednesday but we sat on the porch in comfortable rockers and enjoyed the view

My adult daughter and I took time out from shopping and beach visits to stroll the grounds of this lovely park. We came across numerous outdoor statues each more charming than the last. We had our poodle on leash so couldn't tour the house, but did enjoy the well defined walkways.

Very nice tour to take if you like touring older restored period homes. Knowledgeable tour guide made the tour interesting. There is a small fee for park entrance and a small fee for the tour. Well worth it for a bit of history and walk around the grounds.

This place was good for a short stop, but not quite the all day adventure I was looking for. The grounds are lovely and tranquil, and we witnessed a wedding taking place under a 600 year old live oak tree dubbed the wedding tree. House tour was nice, inexpensive, good for adults. Home has been changed structurally from the original... More

Definitely worth the stop, Amazing antebellum style mansion on beautiful landscaped gardens full of surprises. Built by lumber barons, they could afford Louis 16 era furniture. Sit on porch in rocking chairs and pretend this is mine ! Lake view, trails, flowers and great bronze sculptures will remind you of your youth.

This is a little quiet gem right outside of the busy Destin Florida area. We decided to visit Eden Garden when we had company visiting from Oklahoma. We were so impressed. What a lovely area for a picnic or a walk. You can bring your dog too on a leash. (Be sure to be polite and clean up after him... More

Eden Gardens is a gorgeous spot with beautiful grounds and a Southern plantation house to tour. There is a small fee because it is a State park. If you want to tour the house it is an additional $4 per person but well worth it. The movie "Frogs" (1972) was filmed entirely on location. For a really fun experience, rent... More
