This is a great place for an easy hike. What I liked about hiking here was that it was a wonderful place to go and instantly feel like you aren't in the city. The hiking level is easy and it can feel like a nice stroll in the woods. I loved the ravines and on one trip saw a baby... More

Although it has its merits, the Jacksonville Gardens proved to be quite a disappointment mostly because we had just recently visited the Arboreteum and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina, a truly beautiful and incredibly well planned and landscaped example of a public garden. A small and by its nature, peaceful setting, it paled in comparison to the larger and much... More

Such a beautiful property! Several trails of varying lengths with so much of nature's beauty. Fair warning-do NOT go after several days of rain. The drainage is not fast. Several trails will be under water for days after extended rains.

my boyfriend and i went running here a few weeks ago and it was great! Most paths are shaded so even though it was 100 degrees outside it felt more like 90.. i know that doesn't sound like much but it is when are running. Beautiful and great.

We visited this past weekend and it was like love at first sight. Its so quiet and peaceful. I love the trails. We walked all of them. The sights were beautiful! Each trail is unique. The Jones Creek Trail is my favorite, its short but so pretty! Lake Ray was breath taking! There was so much shade on the trails... More

This is a great place to stay close to home yet feel like you're escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. (It's tucked away near a mall and residential area.) Visits in the spring are very rewarding because the flowers are in bloom, the butterflies roam freely and it's not too hot; although it's nice year round. It's an... More

This quiet park is located in a busy area near Recency Mall, but seems world away. A great place to walk and enjoy the plant life and walking trails. The area is well maintained and even has a large pond. A great place for a brisk walk or quiet reflecting

Nice for a nature walk or hike. Most of the trees and plants have markers for identification. Not so many flowering plants. Look for the unexpected, I think you will have fun. Bring a camera. On the down side, there is OUT HOUSE (yuk)

Great place to walk some trails. I love the options to choose from whether you want a good long walk or an easy loop around the lake. If you choose the Rosemary trail you get to see some nice spots along the way.It looked like they also do weddings so it's a nice location,especially all the great natural photo opts.... More

After visiting the arboreteum in Ashville, North Carolina, there is not much good to say about the Jacksonville version of the same. The best thing I can report is that at least there is some green space that has been set aside for this purpose, but it needs a lot of work and money to get anywhere near what could... More
