A Message From The Director

Celebrate Spring at Florida State Parks

Welcome to the website for Florida’s state parks and state trails. This website will help you plan your visits to Florida’s 171 award-winning state parks and state trails.

During March, many students and their families enjoy spring break with a trip to the beach or a camping trip. These trips provide outdoor recreation and create memories that can last a lifetime. In addition to swimming, building sand castles and walking along the shore, take the time to explore Florida’s bountiful natural treasures by trail – either biking, hiking or paddling. You never know when you’ll discover your newest “favorite” spot on a trail.

During 2015, we celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the system of Florida’s state parks. I am especially proud of our park rangers and volunteers who work to reenact events in Florida’s history. Mark your calendar now for March 7 and 8. Living historians will reenact the Battle of Natural Bridge (just south of Tallahassee) when Union troops were turned away and stopped from taking Florida’s capital during the Civil War.

In March, we celebrate Women’s History Month. The Florida Department of State’s Division of Historic Resources has compiled a booklet highlighting historic sites for the Women’s Heritage Trail. Several state parks and state trails are featured in this impressive booklet.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Also, be sure to download the PocketRanger® app for iPhones and Android smart phones.

See you at the park!

Donald V. Forgione

Director, Florida Park Service
