This was the last stop on the trolley tour and had we known how big it actually was we would have gone here first. You cannot leave without drinking from the Fountain of Youth - we did not know this was actually a huge park.

We visited here on a Sunday in July. We thought we would just be drinking from the fountain but this is a whole village with demonstrations and period “actors” and random peacocks walking around. Be ready to spend at least an hour here. It’s one...More

We do have many paved pathways, but do also have a few that are still sand and some that are mulch. There are some areas that would be difficult with a scooter or walker.
