I like to go there a few times a year on Sunday morning for the farmer's market. They have all kinds of stalls that sell more than just produce and food. I always find a few things to get and it is pleasant with live music and tours of the historic house.

Sundays Punta Gorda History Park hosts a Farmer's Market plus a hosts of very unique arts, crafts and wholesome beauty products. The environment is a taste of South West Florida in the late1800's. The historical buildings were selected and moved to this area on the basis of their structure and/or because the residents who lived in them. Here you will... More

There are several older original homes moved and restored at historical park. Visit the farmers market on Sunday and view and enjoy some of Punta Gorda's history.

I like to learn as much as I can about the area I stay in and this is a great start. Florida does have history and especially the Punta Gorda area. This History Park is a great place to start and is like a little Oasis. We spent a little over and hour and enjoyed learning about the history of... More

The History Park is a self-guided tour of early building of Punta Gorda. All the building have interesting histories. The jail caught my eye. Nice gift shop and the community garderns are a pleasant walk.

Every Sunday there is a market at this nice history park. The market is excellent! Fresh fish, vegetables, get your knives sharpened, or have coffee and fresh baked goods. There are several old houses that you can tour and there is also live music--different every week.You can also buy a bike at the Bike Rescue stall (my favorite). If you... More

I had seen the sign for this place and made a trip to check it out. There really isn't all that much to see but what was there was interesting to read. It is probably more interesting on days when live docents are present.

The Punta Gorda History Park, a few blocks from the historical district and Gilchrist Park, is a worthy destination if one is already visiting Punta Gorda. The site has several old Florida homes - including a tiny cigar home and a former B&B. These preserved old dwellings provide a rare view of life in old Florida. The History Park also... More

Punta Gorda History Park doesn't have much going on during a Saturday in late December. We saw a couple of butterflies and a few flowers. I can see the potential for a great garden in the spring and summer, though.

Close to the park is a communal organic garden, a new initiative sponsored by the city of Punta Gorda. While I was there, I saw several people carrying boxes of small veggies to plant in their allocated box. The veggies which were planted a month or so ago look really healthy and yummy. And I must say that the garden... More
