St Johns River Center
Apr 2019
They have really fixed up the down town area on the river. They have music down there on Saturdays some times. It is a nice place to go walk and see the river. I'm so glad that they finally cleaned the area up.

A Beautiful Center on Downtown Palatka’s Waterfront
Jan 2020 • Couples
Palatka’s downtown has seen a renaissance with the leadership of many residents including the Batram’s Trails Group. The St. John’s River Center, designed for children, is interesting to grown-ups, too. Learn about Bartram’s Travels, the St. John’s River and the area ecology. Step right outside and stroll the beautiful waterfront and downtown Palatka’s many shops and restaurants. A nice place to spend a weekend afternoon, the Center is open 11-4 on Sat. And 1-4 pm on Sun.

What an informative and interactive center
Jul 2019
We were walking back from lunch (staying with relatives in historic district) and stumbled onto this center. Volunteer explained what we walked into and we enjoyed reading the history of the St John's River. Kids would enjoy the interactive aspects. Took less than 30 minutes to review.

Grandsons Visit to Fountain After Riverfront Playground
Apr 2019 • Family
Grandson always wants to visit fountain after playing at the river front park. He is 5 years old. He really enjoys it. It is a nice area, but it needs maintenance or it will be failing soon. Come on Palatka, keep the area maintained so we can continue to enjoy area .Thanks

Good tourist information center. Nice views of the St John’s river. We stayed at the city docks while passing through on our boat.

Beautiful, restful spot on the St John's
Mar 2018
This is a newly created park on the St. John's River. The showcase is the River itself. The fountains and lighting complement the river and do not detract from it. It is very peaceful to just sit on the bench and watch the river go and birds go by. The clock tower is reminiscent of the old clock towers in days gone by.

Relaxing place to visit
Aug 2018
The area is very well maintained, there is a nice park/play area for the kids with swings and such that have picnic tables for the adults to sit and keep an eye on the kids. There is a path where you can walk along the water and see the boats or launch your own boat. The only drawback is there are no bathroom facilities at this time.

A must for children and adults
May 2018 • Couples
My husband and I had an informative and enjoyable visit to this interactive learning center. The guide, who was very pleasant, was most helpful and had good information to share. There is much to be learned about the St. Johns River and the ways people and nature have interacted. The displays are attractive and informative without being overly detailed. I heartedly recommend taking some time to visit this museum.

Education with a rooftop view
Feb 2018 • Couples
River Center can be rented for parties, weddings and hosts school groups. Great educational exhibits are interactive. Meet the turtle. Climb up to the rooftop for scenic river views.
