Named after the native peoples who once called this area home, Alimacani Park is located on Xalvis Island, adjacent to the Fort George River. Some of the first Europeans to arrive in northeast Florida landed on Xalvis Island in 1562. The park and nearby Fort George Island (formerly part of the Timucuan Indian settlement of Alimacani) comprise a portion of the 46,000-acre Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. The scenic stretch of A1A known as the Buccaneer Trail, named for pirates such as Blackbeard that pillaged the coast, borders the park on the east, and the City’s Alimacani Boat Ramp abuts the park on the west.

The boat ramp provides access to the Fort George River and its tributaries. Alimacani provides awesome opportunities for jet skiers, kayakers, canoers and small jon boaters. The marsh area offers ample bird observation.
