The gardens were beautiful and the view of the river very pleasant. We enjoyed the well-kept walking trails. I was a bit disappointed that they had not repaired the beach portion of the park so I could see the coquina I'd read about.

Beautiful little gem of a park. Beautiful old trees, amazing garden. Pets can't walk in the garden but there are other trails to take and has nice path to the river.

This park is so beautiful, and it's nice to see "old Florida" and not some theme park version. The gardens are lovely and the history of the property is very interesting. It's a big place, so wear comfortable walking shoes. The beach side of the...More

We came across this small state park by chance. There was a five dollar daily fee to enter. The park is the winter home, gardens and acreage of the Young family, who donated it to the state. The house is the visitors center. Maps of...More

This state park is a hidden treasure - easily missed as you drive down Highway A1A. Make time to walk through, even if you only have an hour. The entry fee is $5 per car. There is a walking path along the back perimeter, banking...More

What a beautiful getaway from all the bustle of St. Augustine. We enjoyed both the gardens and the hiking trails - very scenic with water views. Very nice bathrooms as well. It is true that the hurricane has caused some damage but there was still...More

Tried to visit the coquina beach at Washington Oaks but apparently the hurricanes of 2017 severely damaged the beach and access was closed. I did drive a road close to the park and saw tremendous damage to the live oak/palmetto woods. Very disappointed.
