Jacksonville Arboreteum & Gardens consists of 120 acres of well maintained trails. That lead through woods, of rare maples , roses, magnolias, all are labled. Their are several gardens, a native garden, Aaian bamboo garden. Their are many events, and an event lawn. The facilities are clean, the staff is efficient. I enjoyed myself.

Went for a hike here with my SO and spent like 2 hours doing most of the trails. Get there early where there's not much people so you can enjoy the full beauty of nature around the area.

We've spent time at this park many times over the last few years and they're making vast improvements. There are several trails and its a good place to get an hour of solitude if you need it. Can't wait to see this place in bloom next spring!

Even though I have lived in Jacksonville for many years, I had never been to this park until I was looking for a place to take my daughters Senior Prom photos. Beautiful little well kept park with wild flowers and lots of shade.

Once you are back in the woods, walking through the hills next to a stream, you would swear that you are not in Florida. Definitely worth checking out.

My husband and I stopped here on our way home to Minnesota from a trip to Florida. We wanted a leg stretcher before a long drive and were in for a treat. You can make this hike as short or as long as you'd like. And there's no cost! We went on a lovely Friday and it wasn't crowded. Trail... More

I cannot believe that I have not ever been here! My husband and I went to do a little hiking. We were looking for a longer hike and the route says they have around 2 miles. Well we managed to make it a little over 3 1/2. There are several different trails that intertwine. Many of the plants and flowers... More

We visited here on our recent trip to Jacksonville. This is an excellent place to go on a hike and learn about Northern Florida Flora. We have never hiked in this type of terrain before and were greatly impressed with the trees and plant life, many of which we have never seen before! It is great that Jacksonville has this... More
