From former pinelands and majestic upland mixed forest to shady fern-covered wetlands where water slowly seeps from the ground to form the beginnings of Hogtown Creek, this 82 acre park protects a variety of natural habitats. The park was purchased with funds from the Florida Communities Trust and with a generous donation from Home Depot. A 0.5 mile loop nature trail, playground, picnic pavilion, and fitness loop, provide options for both nature-based and active recreation.
The Hogtown Creek Headwaters Nature Center is now open! Come by and check out our great new exhibits on the history of the park and our amazing Gainesville creeks!
