Good views for photography. It was clean and quiet. I went with my spouse but i felt like i would be totally safe there alone.

Even locals seem unaware of this quiet place to walk, explore, picnic, and unwind! I've taken my family two or three times, and the kids loved it. There are many kinds of trees, bushes, and flowers to be discovered, along with insects, swimming snakes, and, yes, even gators (reported in the pond). There are a few picnic tables not far... More

It's not a formal garden, but a natural area that has some help from volunteers who weed and plant native plants. Do yourself a favor and grab a map on the way in and don't "wing it" through the trails. Not especially long, they often connect and if you're not paying attention you could be in for a longer walk... More

I read this trail was moderate but it was very easy. There are many connecting trails so you can make the trek short or long depending on how you feel. It's easy to navigate and signs are easy to understand. Great place to take kids or go for a walk to see some of the wildlife of Florida! If you're... More

This is one of our favorite places. It's so nice, quiet and relaxing. The trails are nice and our dogs love the walks. The big pond and benches are great to sit and look at.

This place is so beautiful. They have volunteers that keep it clean & are constantly perfecting it. There are so many little paths to different areas. I see wildlife of all kinds here. I love the bridges that go over little streams & cobble stoned paths. We take our dog here all of the time. It is so picturesque bring... More

I guess being from Atlanta I expected a spectacular hiking trail but it was actually kind of creepy.

If you are into running and want to get a nice workout in very little mileage, then these trails are for you. Don't let the fact that all trails combined add to around 3-4 miles altogether deceive you, these trails might be short but they are super challenging (at least for running). A lot of hills, some rooty areas but... More

A very "organic" arboretum. Trail map was easy to follow and the trails were well marked. Diverse plant life that is identified with signs. Very shaded. Donation.

This quiet sanctuary located in the Arlington area of Jacksonville is worth the suggested donation of $3.00. There is a wide gravel path that encircles the main area. There's lovely Lake Ray in the middle of the site. For the more adventurous, there are side trails that go deeper into the woods. During my 1.5 hour visit, I encountered an... More
