fun to see

If you are in the area, this park is worth a visit. Very cool trees that can be found in the park. Trails are rustic, so if you have a harder time getting around, be aware.

We experienced the park by bike. The trails can accommodate pedestrians and bikes. History buffs and nature types will really enjoy this park.

Love walking the trail down to the beach to watch the sunset! It is so peaceful and just a nice way to spend an afternoon. Stop by Jackson's Oak and stand in awe of it's majesty and size!!! End your evening with a picnic supper under the pavilion! Just a very nice place.

We decided to stop at the Village Point park. There is a nice Pavillion in the park but the road to the Oak was located on the side of the park. We decided to stop by on Sunday morning and the gate was closed. We walked around the gate as you could see many had did this in the past.... More

If you enjoy history, be sure to go here! It is very interesting and a beautiful area to visit. The tree in the picture is very old.

The Village Point Park Preserve is accessible from Bayfront Park or from Scenic US 98. There is a boardwalk over the marsh lands and streams coming directly from Mobile Bay. At the end of the boardwalk is a pier for fishing on Mobile Bay. A nearby beach is accessible for swimming also. Recently I walked the boardwalk and saw a... More

In my opinion, the picture of this magnificent tree doesn't do it justice. It is a wonderful site to see. The entire park is beautiful, although the tree was not easy for our group to find. The maps in the two parking lots you can use to access the park show the location of the tree but do not clearly... More

We enjoyed an 8 am stroll through this park and were the only people there (with the exception of a fisherman on the pier). It was very quiet and had a nice mix of woods and views along the bay (The park connects to Bayshore Park). There are some spectacular "state champion" trees and the historic Jackson Tree Live Oak...

Stopped here and spent day cooking on grill provided by park and picnic tables located under a pavilion with nice bathrooms near by. Great trails there leading... More

Very nice walking trail if you want to see a lot of nature. Ends up down by the bay. Beautiful! We took our dogs down there and it was a great place for them to stretch their legs!
