This state park is a must for history, beauty and serenity. A look into the history of the first settlers of our great state of Florida. Beautiful views of intracoastal waters.

If you are in the Flagler Beach area and have the time take a side trip off I-95 and travel North to St Augustine on A1A. As well as a lovey drive you'll pass Washington Oaks Gardens - or if you take our advice you won't pass it, instead you'll go in. The walk round the estate and formal gardens... More

This is such a relaxing place to go. Bring your lunch and sit by the water. Watch the dolphins and fish jumping. Then take a stroll through the nature trails. There is an entrance fee before you enter the park.

This is one of the more beautiful parks I have been to in awhile!. It has everything from trails to beach access but the crown jewel is the gardens that set in the center. When the different flowers that are in bloom just match it a peaceful match to just meditate if you want to. It is very accessible and... More

Photo Club headed out to this park for a day of photography, rest, and relaxing. Well, it met all of this and more. Easy access with plenty of parking, easy walk to the inter-coastal waterway, lined with benches, and tables (grills too.) Surprisingly the Rose Garden was in FULL bloom! Beautiful. Nice walk around the grounds, crews continue to clean... More

Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is a must see when traveling in Northeastern Florida. The grounds, even after Hurricane Matthew raged through the area, are beautiful and tranquil. Fishing off their seawall or just watching the boats on the Intercoastal Waterway is a relaxing way to spend some time in the area.

We like the movers and shakers type of vacation and brought our bikes. We thoroughly enjoyed the Washington Oaks Gardens State Park and would like to return again.

Out of the way but worth a stop! This beautiful location on the Matanzas is between Palm Coast and Flagler Beach. A very nice state park with a parking lot on the beachside as well.

We went after the hurricane Matthew disaster. The staff is doing a great job in clearing and cleaning. The gardens were peaceful with lots of birds, squirrels and geckos. There are many nature hikes as well, need to wear lots of big spray as the mosquitoes are vicious. Would like to go again and visit the beach side as well.
