Fort Caroline National Memorial
Home of the Timucuan Preserve Visitor Center, this park memorializes the site of a 16th-century French colony—the first European settlement in the area. Check out the Visitor Center with exhibits about the area’s natural history, European exploration, and the Timucua Native Americans. Take a hike on the many trails through mature hardwood forests. Trails lead to a Timucuan hut and shell mound exhibit and a memorial fort exhibit and former French colony along the St. Johns River. After a few hours here you can travel across the street to access the Spanish Pond Trail leading to the Theodore Roosevelt Area.
NOTE: Dock removed
Due to hurricane damage, the floating dock was removed and replaced by a pier.
