Eden Gardens State Park is a fantastic place to go to if you need a break from the beach. A nice beautiful quiet place to relax. A tour of the grounds and of Wesley Mansion is very relaxing. The grounds are a popular local place for weddings. The history of the area and mansion is explained by the Park Ranger... More

Visited the park on a rainy day and we enjoyed the beauty. Grounds go to the river/bay. We did not take the house tour but did sit on the rocking chairs on the porch and watch the rain. Do you have kids into Pokemon GO? Come here. Many Pokestops and two gyms. You can enjoy the grounds while the kids... More

loved the grounds. it was like walking back in time. went at the wrong time. the yellow flies were bad and got bit but it was worth it. I plan on going back when the weather is cooler and by myself to walk the trails.

We visited on a Tuesday afternoon, but found the house closed. Don't go by the information on the website. The grounds are very pretty with large live oaks draped with spanish moss. There are a number of picnic tables which would make for a nice lunch. The "gardens" are small and not terribly impressive. Needless to say we were disappointed... More

Beautiful park land, a house steeped in history and a wonderful guided tour all combined to make this a lovely way to spend a few hours during our recent Florida vacation.

We got married here after stumbling over it on google. We visit Destin yearly and decided to tie the knot here! It is beautiful and definitely a place to see! I'm not sure why everyone doesn't have a wedding here it isn't expensive to have a ceremony here, you don't need any decorations because the nature is free... And they... More

This is beautiful and a nice and quiet place to go and get away from town. Also looks like a great place to have a wedding.

We attended a family wedding in the park. What a beautiful place!! With the 200+ year old live oak "Wedding Tree" as a back drop, all were wrapped up in the beauty of the day!

Eden Gardens is a cute little park brimming with southern charm. There are pathways lined with beautiful oak trees which made me feel like I was transported back in time. The house itself is not the most interesting home I've ever toured, but the tour guide was able to tell us what the home looked like prior to its reconstruction... More

We recently visited the house and grounds and enjoyed a very pleasant couple of hours. The house is not huge (and to a European mindset it's not all that old either) but it is extremely pretty, very well-presented and our tour guide was enthusiastic to a fault. The grounds are lovely and we really enjoyed wandering around under the live... More
