Walking in Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

Enjoy a 3-4 mile walk in this small state park located south of St. Augustine between the Matanzas River and the ocean.

The park is known for its formal gardens. We’ll stroll through the gardens, follow a nature trail through woods, and then walk to the ocean where you could continue on your own along the beach. Afterwards, there's the option for lunch at Captain's Barbeque at Bing's Landing, one mile south.

Meet in the park’s parking lot opposite the rose garden at 9:45 a.m. to allow time for sign-in. Bring water and snacks. No pets please. Park entrance fee: $5 per vehicle. Arrange carpools on Meetup.

Location: 6400 N. Oceanshore Blvd., Palm Coast, Florida 32137. (386) 446-6780. www.floridastateparks.org/washingtonoaks.

Directions: Drive south on I-95. exit at FL-206 going east then turn right to go south on A1A . Park will be about 10 miles south on the right. Estimated driving time from Mandarin: 55 minutes.

    Beautiful morning for a walk through the gardens, along the Florida Trail, and to the beach overlook. Lots of nice hikers, too. Very enjoyable.

    If anyone would like to carpool we could meet at the McDonald's on St. Augustine Rd. just W. of I-95 by 8:30. We should leave by 8:45 as it's a 1:15 drive to the park from there.

    Hi, please change your reservations in the reservation box above the photos. I closed the trip yesterday. Cancellations enable another person to join the outing.
    Thanks to everyone who has responded re whether you are going to lunch and selection of pork, chicken or turkey barbeque or vegetarian salad. Use the email option to respond by clicking on my name. I need to call the restaurant with a rough count on Friday morning. Thanks.

    If there is anyone interested in carpooling, please let me know. I live on the Westside, but not a problem to meet somewhere across the river where we can leave cars. Let me know. :)
