Though easy to get to, it is basically the remnants of what was a beautiful giant historical tree... I believe it was called The Senator. Entire area is very old Florida. The tree could have come down during the many hurricanes and sadly the inside of the trunk was badly burned when a homeless person made a fire to keep warm on winter.

Although The Senator is no longer there as it burned down awhile ago, Lady Liberty still stands strong about 40 feet away. She is estimated to be about 2000 years old, which is still really impressive.

This used to be a great visit when the Senator 1500 BC-2012 AD until it burned down. There still is a very old sister tree left standing and dates back to biblical times.

County folks planted new tree sired from old tree that was burned by careless women. Park is nothing much without tree. There is a short boardwalk and bathroom facilities but no drinking water. It is on the Seminole multi-use trail so it a convenient resting stop for dog walkers, runners and cyclists between Winter Springs and Lake Mary if you know how to navigate a few streets. Some signs help with navigation but more are needed.
