Is a scenic public park, which is bordered by Lake Maitland on the north and west of the park. Enjoy the beauty and enormous cypress trees throughout the park. The park is open from 8 am till dusk every day. The park is ideal for those that prefer a sunset wedding ceremony. Pets are allowed on a leash.

Nice relaxing park to go sit and watch the birds fly by. Watch the boats, Rollins crew team, see a wedding take place. Just a neat natural place.

Saw this from the boat ride (which is excellent), and decided to drive over to see it. Very glad we did as we just took a casual 20 minute walk through the park. Very comfortable because of all the lovely trees - even in 95 degree heat.

My husband and I are not the "outdoorsy" types, but this was a special occasion as we wanted to take anniversary pictures that represented and cemented our status as "Floridians." What better way to do that than to take pictures under cypress trees. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking! Will visit again soon.

this little gem is away from main roads and not known to many but it is a delightful place to sit and watch the lake under a canopy of tall cypress filled with nesting bird life. Truly a 'secret garden' if you want to refresh your soul

...as long as nobody on a boat with a beatbox drives by. Very relaxing atmosphere and soothing with people around who also move in a relaxed non hectic way

Wow, amazing views. Beautiful trees (but wear good walking shoes, the tree knees will stub some toes). Incredible birds everywhere. A cacophony of bird calls (might be wise to wear a hat too...just in case). Loved it.

You are in awe of the trees and view as soon as you pull into the parking lot (which is small, so don't expect to have any big parties here). It is mainly visited by couples, residents, and photographers for photoshoots. But beware of the birds! I was relaxing in my hammock under some trees and they decided to release... More
