“Great park, well maintained”

Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park
Ranked #7 of 85 things to do in Tallahassee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I have visited Maclay Gardens State Park numerous times to use their mountain bike facilites. I recently visited and had lunch there with some friends. I found the staff to be very helpful and informative about the park and its history. The park and it's trails can be confusing at times if there is no map availiabe. Luckily a park ranger (I cant remember his name) appeared shortly after I found myself slightly lost and produced a laminated map for me to use during my visit. I found this perk of the park to be very helpful.

Beuatiful Garden trails , old hunting lodge overlooking lake. If you like to walk this is a great experience. Take a lunch and eat down by the lake.

This is a great place to visit with the family. Hiking and biking trails and when it warms up--good swimming. We went this time for a picnic and to see the azaleas. They were beautiful!

The camellias make a great show in winter months and in spring the azaleas are lovely. The gardens have water features as well and many other plants to admire.

If you enjoy walking or bike riding, Maclay Gardens offers the perfect setting.
Stunning landscape, including acres of magnolias and camellias, a lkae and a reflecting pool are visual treats for walkers who can stoll along a brick pathway or meander down secondary paths.
End up at a lovely hitoric home/museum to lern more about the original owners ad their passions.

Cyclists will enjoy exploring more wild settings that weave in and out of lush vegetation. Birds watchers will be thrilled.

Very helpful volunteers answers questions abou the house and gardens.

Well worth the small entrance fee!
