Washington Gardens State Park

One of our “resolutions” for 2020 is to go to a different park every Sunday. One such park is Washington Gardens State Park in Flagler County, FL. This is a beautiful State Park that costs just $5 per vehicle to enter. It’s no secret that Florida has warmer temperatures in the winter, but it’s still a grand site to walk through a blooming rose garden at the end of January.

The park, like most of the parks along A1A, is on both sides of the road, the surf side, and the inlet side. The coastal side has a different type of walkway down to the beach. It.s not a typical boardwalk, but it looks like some type of tracks. It’s not made for bare feet, but it is great for getting all the sand off your shoes before getting back in your car.

The inlet side is where the majority of the park is. The gardens are handicap accessible and an easy walk. Walk through a path surrounded by towering ancient oak trees draped with Spanish moss. Sit a spell in one of the benches by the Matanzas River before circling back through the museum and garden.

There’s interesting reading about the history of the home place, gardens and maritime hammock.

Take your time and stroll through the beauty garden. All sorts of roses and azaleas and exotic flowering plants adorn your walk. There are several fountains and ponds with koi. Take a selfie or two in the gazebo.

We highly recommend this park anytime you’re in the Flagler area. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday, or any day for that matter.
