 About Jonathan Dickinson State Park

Visitors enjoy a boat tour at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Hobe Sound.

A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Mark Nelson

Fall is a fantastic time to come out to the park and enjoy the changing of the season. The summer prescribed burns have resulted in wonderful wildflower blooms. The wiregrass has bloomed and the resulting appearance looks like fields of wheat. The cooler weather will allow you to venture out and enjoy these scenic vistas. Maybe you would like to try your hand at the recreational activity of Geocaching? The Florida Park Service is currently hosting a statewide geocaching program and Jonathan Dickinson State Park is a participating park. Go to http://www.floridastateparks.org/thingstodo/location-based/geocaching.cfm for additional information on this unique program. If the views were not enough, this program will give you another reason to get out and "Get a little park on ya!"

Don't forget to check out what's going on at the Kimbell Center and see the amazing award winners for the 2014 Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park Photo Contest.
