“All Wars Memorial And More”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a beautiful county park in Gainesville which has so much to offer! 5 picnic pavilions, grills, and the rental of a Meeting room with a kitchen. The private center costs around 400 including the kitchen but is awesome and modern. The pavilions are first come first serve so check it out!

“Great for kids or couples!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Want a place tto stretch your legs and let the kids have fun too? This is a great place for that. It has a soccer field, playground equipment, nature trails, bathrooms (important!), swings, picnic tables in the shade, grills and then some! It's not far from I-75 and if you are stopping by Gainesville or just passing through it's the perfect place for a picnic!

“Nice, large park”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

A nice park, with roller hockey rink and sports fields. There is also a community center and a veterans memorial onsite. The park has lots of open spaces, workout stations and jogging path.

“Great neighborhood park”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

The park has a little of everything: trails, bird watching, playgrounds, covered pavilions, basketball and volleyball courts, soccer fields, jogging path with workout stations and even a nice restroom facility. Parking can be tricky on crowded days. I've never encountered and any hostel people at the park, but I have seen a car broken into, so be wary of that.

This is Kanapaha park, not Kanapaha botanical gardens. They are not far from each other, but one is a county park and the other is a botanical garden. And both are great for what they are.
