The upgrading work on the property was not an issue for me but the so called "Historic District" encompassing the Young's winter home was a let-down ; no home to see. The garden areas were average and certainly not outstanding by any means: this statement does not any manner denigrate the hard work done by volunteers. Another state park gift... More

We planned our stop at Washington Oaks State Park to see the tidal pools I had read about online. We had no trouble finding the park on A1A in Palm Coast but I would suggest that you come in from north of Palm Coast and do not cross the bridge from Palm Coast to A1A--the bridge toll is $2 going...

We enjoyed the park but we want to go back when they finish the up grades that were taking place. There was no water in the pond areas, but we could tell it is going to be beautiful. Loved the rose garden.

My mother and I walked through and enjoyed the Rose Garden most of all. It was interesting to see ! We were interested in the history of the property. It rained towards the end of our visit, so it was cut short, but I'd recommend this place, especially if you love roses.

Good place to enjoy a nice walk in the park, with many types of flowers. The setting overlooking the Intercoastal with walking trails and picnic areas makes it a nice place to spend the day

This state park is beautiful. Right now they are doing major renovations, so their ponds are empty, but you can still enjoy the rest of the park. The paths are very easy to navigate/walk. There are many places to take great pictures. Plus they have a nice, air conditioned gift shop. We would recommend stopping at this state park if... More
