Washington Oaks Gardens State Park
Located about 20 minutes south of St. Augustine in Central Florida and sitting between the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River, Washington Oaks Gardens State Park preserves 425 acres of coastal scenery along State Road A1A in Palm Coast, Florida. The Park’s eastern boundary holds one of the largest arrangements of coquina rock on the Atlantic Ocean, creating a picturesque boulder-strewn beach. The heart of the Park consists of a coastal scrub community that transitions into lavish hammock where towering live oaks, hickory and magnolia trees offer their welcome shade. Bordering the hammock are the scenic tidal marshes of the Matanzas River.
Within the hammock, lies the centerpiece of this park, the rose garden ceremony platform. Surrounded by this platform are the beautiful formal rose gardens. Upon entering the park, your senses will be overwhelmed with the soft smell of fresh, luscious, roses, and all of their beautiful colors.
Washington Oaks Gardens State Park encompasses two Florida State Parks (Washington Oaks Gardens and Faver-Dykes), as well as two different worlds. A short walk across the gardens will take you to the shoreline of coquina rock formations that line its Atlantic Beach, something that this park is famous for.
