Had high hopes for this park... four stocked fishing holes with room for small Jon boats with trolling motors. For awhile the city cleaned, mowed, and built walkways thru the space. But this park is falling into disrepair. There is a nice home for a policeman to live in and keep an eye on things... most of the wooden walk... More

We found this park online and decided to drive there from Ft Caroline area. It is a relatively undeveloped park. Previous reviews indicated good hiking. We drove down the long driveway until it ended which is at least 1.5 miles. It had rained the night before and the driveway was very muddy with poor drainage. There were large/deep potholes filled...

This park would be a good place to teach a kid to fish - for bream. Make sure you have some very small hooks and a lot of bait. Be careful if it has rained because the roads are not maintained very well.

A large mostly undeveloped park on the westside of Jacksonville. Mostly of interest to fisherman, or those just interested in walking in the woods. There are several lakes/ponds in the park, trails and picnic tables. The only bathrooms available are at the main entrance to the park. The park is usually not very crowded, easy to find a spot to...
