Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

Welcome to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

The formal gardens are the centerpiece of our park, with remarkable displays of native and exotic plant species such as azaleas, camellias, and bird of paradise.  The gardens offer visitors a peaceful stroll through winding reflection ponds which are sheltered by a picturesque oak hammock.   Washington Oaks is also famous for the unique shoreline of coquina rock formations that line its Atlantic beach. This ancient rock formation creates the perfect spot for beachcombing, tidal pool exploring, and photography.  Visitors can picnic and fish from either the beach or the seawall along the Matanzas River bordering our west boundary.  We offer a number of short trails providing opportunities for hiking and bicycling, as well as a visitor center open for learning about the park's natural and cultural resources.  Washington Oaks hosts several annual events including an Earth Day Celebration, Holiday in the Gardens, and Saltwater fishing clinics.  First Friday Garden and History walks along with Second Saturday Plant Sales offer the community consistent monthly programming to enjoy.  Hiking, birding, fishing, strolling, or spending a day at the beach; Washington Oaks offers something for everyone!
