1000 Faver-Dykes State road, St. Augustine, FL
Faver-Dykes State Park is a Florida State Park located 15 miles south of St. Augustine, near the intersection of I-95 and US 1. In 1950, Hiram Faver, a former longtime Clerk of the Court in St. Johns County, donated the land to the state of Florida. The park is named for his parents, Alexander Hall Faver and Florida Dykes Faver. Noted for its pristine condition, this tranquil park borders Pellicer Creek as it winds along Florida's east coast highways down to the Matanzas River.
Pellicer Creek is a popular site for birding with more than one hundred bird species seen during spring and fall migrations. Songbirds, including the colorful wood warblers, along with eagles and falcons, return to nest at the park each year. Wading birds, such as egrets, wood storks, white ibis, and herons, feed in the tidal marshes and creeks. This peaceful park is also home to deer, turkeys, hawks, bobcats, and river otters.
