Best time to go is at low tide because of all the coquina rock that you will see. Countless wade pools are fun in the summer for little ones. Great place for photography.

Beautiful day, beautiful park. Saw people removing large chunk of coquina though. I guess they couldn’t read. Great access even for handicapped. Different beach than you find in other parts of the East coast of Florida.

We spent a very windy, cool day at the park just walking around the gardens and trail and beach. We sat on the intercoastal side and watched dolphins jump in the water. It is not a huge area, but is very well maintained and has...More

I visited the park on our last day in Florida. I didn't expect much to be in bloom in the gardens, but was pleasantly surprise by the camilias, a bromeliad, and a few iris. The oaks were Hugh and lovely. I walked throughout the gardens...More

Nice area to bike. Or walk around and see the intercostal water. Many BJ he’s scattered around to sit. Small play grounds for the kids. P a full walk over bridges to see the ponds and flowers

This state park is a beautiful reminder of days gone by that we can enjoy today. The gardens are spectacular and well-maintained, and the trails wind through native Florida habitat. Don't miss the beach across the road where shells are abundant.

A very beautiful and very well maintained park. Once a plantation it has been turned into a state park. A great place to spend a quiet afternoon.

Beach is not open yet as of last weekend. You can park at Marineland and walk the beach. There is lots of heavy duty constuction equipment and beach replenishment in place so be careful.
