    AMAZING hiking spot

    I’ve lived here my whole life and have never even heard of this place. it was so beautiful here and provides tons of small trails for you and your pooch. this place could provide hours of entertainment. needless to say my doggy was very tired by the end of this hike.

    Hidden Gem In Jacksonville

    Nice place for a quick hike with your dog. Some of the trails are a bit narrow when you encounter other people and/or dogs. The place is well maintained and easy to navigate. I look forward to our next visit.

    Beautiful Spot!

    My husband and I were looking for a spot to walk our dogs and wear them out a little and this place is gorgeous! depending on when you go or can be a little busy with families with young children but my dogs didn’t mind a bit! definitely going to be visiting again!

    Beautiful hidden park

    My dear friend Dr Watson and I enjoyed the park immensely. The trails were well kept and offered viewing stations as well as plant identification. There were several options for trails and the park is obviously concerned about the wildlife there. It was too cold to be concerned about the alligators today, who would consider my friend a tasty snack, but in warmer weather you might also catch a glimpse of a land tortoise.
