Michelle Waterman, Park Manager

Our hiking trails range from the ¼-mile garden trail that highlights native flora at a series of interpretive panels to over 3 miles of looped trail that traverse the woods, pass wetlands and take the adventurer to a bench from which a bald eagle nest can be viewed. Horseback riders and mountain bikers will enjoy our longer trail networks that connect to the city of Jacksonville's Betz Tiger and Cedar Point preserves.

Don’t miss the scenic creek overlook at our canoe and kayak launch, a local favorite. Bring a picnic and watch for river otters, dolphin and wood storks.

We hope that you and your family can take advantage of the restorative nature that our park offers. Whether it’s hiking, picnicking, bicycling or just breathing, we are happy to see you here.
