I love to go here and just read about the Native Americans way of living in the area --long ago. I also like to "run" the 80 some steps to the top of the tallest mound and then just observe the area and realize how...More

Right near the Mission San Luis Park is this hidden quiet park. Large dog run areas are fenced, surrounded by lakes, trails and wooden walkways and bridges. Very quiet and peaceful area giving guests and visitors a chance to get away.

This place is so amazing and peaceful. Find a boat launch and you will be good ! So many birds and wildlife attractions you will be amazed.

If you are looking for historical text and artifacts, visit the nearby San Luis. This site is undisturbed burial mounds in a peaceful N. FL setting. I wouldn't recommend this as an "attraction" for visitors traveling through Tallahassee, but it is a must visit for...More

Love the site interpretation; cool history and a beautiful peaceful place. Could use more visible staff but understand budget restrictions.

This is not the best place to go to during spring and summer well because of bugs, humidity and heat. The historical significance although nice is barely on display. Clearly the budget for the park is lacking. The signs are also faded from weathering. Great...More
