Smack in the middle of the city is this 180-acre park, which offers a respite from city life with picnicking, camping, swimming and canoeing and a chance to tour the home of the generous man who donated his lovely estate to Florida.

This is a great little park with plenty of area to lay out on the beach or watch the cruise ships are they come by on their way to sea or into port. Fun activity for all. Fishing from the beach or the pier.

Not a large state park, but plenty of parking, security, equipment for kids. It has open spaces for walking and bird watching.
