Newly rebuilt boardwalks and overlooks, new hiking trails, new playground equipment, and other upgraded amenities now await visitors to one of Gainesville’s oldest nature parks. The lush greenery of the live oak hammock provides habitat for forest wildlife, while wading birds and other creatures thrive in the park’s two marshes. The forests and wetlands in this park provide an important buffer between urban Gainesville and the extensive natural areas of Paynes Prairie, and a convenient getaway to enjoy the peace and quiet of natural north Florida.
