Here we are at the beginning of the park where we went to check out the visitors center and pick up a map. Now we must tell you - this is one the shadiest parks with huge big trees draped in Spanish Moss - Mom said it gave the whole park a magical feel - yeah what ever Mom!
Having picked up our map we head down the trail marked 'fort' and along the way came across one of the
From Fort Caroline "Cowspotdog" we went across the road to the Spanish Ponds. From here you can take a walking trail to Timucuan Preserve which is another area of natural bush land. Now something else we learned was all this park land was once owned by an old guy by name of Willie Brown. He was offered millions of dollar for the land as it is in a super prime location but in his own immortal words he said "Pretty soon there will come a day when there will be nothing but concrete jungle from New York City to Jacksonville - that is why I want this place saved - so you can come and see some of God's handwork" In 1969 he donated all the land for free to the National Parks Service - way to go Willie - we thank you from the bottom of our paws to the tips of our tails!
