Where would you be? by the description you must be St. Augustine, Florida – the oldest European settlement, and for lots who visit, the most charming old city in in U.S.A..

St Augustine parks have a great deal to offer visitors. Just imagine taking a relaxing stroll along unspoiled beaches; or wandering along trails beneath a canopy of majestic oaks; or climbing up ancient coquina steps to peer out an old gun tower; you’ll find all this and more at our area parks.
