A nice, small little park with a playground, a few picnic tables and a modern restroom. BUT, Just behind the restrooms, up a very small hill is the tomb of John Ormond, out in the middle of no-where and like stated earlier, practically in some ones back yard. What a cool thing to stumble onto. Keep a look out for... More

The burial mound sits just off the road, essentially in someone's backyard. We at first found this odd, but were glad that it wasn't just razed, which has been done before. The mound was a bit difficult to find. There is a park across the road with parking and benches. We chose to park there and walk across the street... More

This is a real Florida park. The parking is in sand as well as most of the park. There are not many trees for shade so the park can be a hot experience. There are restrooms, playground equipment, picnic tables. Located along the scenic Loop in Ormond Beach it is a nice surprise one your journey for bikers (both types)... More

We've driven past James Ormond Park a hundred times and never stopped, until yesterday when we had an hour to kill. I wanted to read the historical marker, and was interested to find out that Ormond Beach was named after James Ormond II, who moved here in 1804. I've lived in the area more than 17 years and never knew... More

Ormond Beach is named for James Ormond I, a Scotch-Irish sea captain commissioned by King Ferdinand VII of Spain to bring Franciscan settlers to the area. His son, James Ormond II died in 1829 and is buried in Ormond Tomb Park. My question is.. Why build a kiddy park around a grave? It's a nice park, don't get me wrong.... More

The name, because of the word "Tomb" in it, makes this park sound like it would be a morbid place to go. Indeed it's not. Lots of playground equipment for the kids and it appears to be well maintained.

If your up in the Loop in North Ormond this is a nice place to stop and let the kids run some energy off, plenty to climb and play on, pavilions and bathrooms, you won't find this place is very busy, you will probably enjoy the park by yourself on most days.

When cruising the Old Dixie Highway, Ormond Tomb Park is a good place for a rest stop. It is the final resting place for James Ormond, an original plantation owner and namesake of Ormond Beach. The site has a playground for the kids and restrooms for the needy. Plenty of free parking. Great place to meet others or take a... More

This park is right off the road along the Loop. It's worth stopping if you have an interest. I can't really imagine anyone going all the way out there for the playground or to see the grave?? The actual grave is tucked in the back of the property, and there is no path leading to it (I was on the... More
