Right near the Mission San Luis Park is this hidden quiet park. Large dog run areas are fenced, surrounded by lakes, trails and wooden walkways and bridges. Very quiet and peaceful area giving guests and visitors a chance to get away.

This is an excellent place for a picnic, as there are lots of tables available. There is also a covered pavilion and very nice bathrooms - real ones, not portable ones. We like to explore the trails and were delighted to find a new kiosk!...More

If you are looking for historical text and artifacts, visit the nearby San Luis. This site is undisturbed burial mounds in a peaceful N. FL setting. I wouldn't recommend this as an "attraction" for visitors traveling through Tallahassee, but it is a must visit for...More

Love the site interpretation; cool history and a beautiful peaceful place. Could use more visible staff but understand budget restrictions.

This is not the best place to go to during spring and summer well because of bugs, humidity and heat. The historical significance although nice is barely on display. Clearly the budget for the park is lacking. The signs are also faded from weathering. Great...More

We joined the local bird club for a Saturday walk around the park and then checked out the archaeological mounds and a very nice trail that took us to a former mill site dating back to the 1800's when the property had been a plantation....More
