St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park
Welcome to St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park
This park preserves open grassy forests of longleaf pine that were once commonplace throughout Florida.
The pine flatwoods form a backdrop for other biological communities, including cypress domes, scrubby flatwoods, sand hills and a beautiful strand swamp. These habitats are home to many native plants and animals, including over 50 protected species.
Photographers, bird-watchers and nature enthusiasts can explore miles of trails on foot, bicycle or horseback.
Canoeing, boating and fishing on the St. Sebastian River are popular activities. Launching facilities are available outside the preserve at Dale Wimbrow Park. Several private ramps are available along the St. Sebastian River and at a canoe launch north of County Road 512.
