Fort Caroline National Memorial Gardens Reviews & Ratings

  • It we a nice area to look around. There was some on going construction that limited where we could go and it is fairly small compared to some of the other forts I have visited. They do have interesting info displayed and I was impressed by the Eagle Scout projects to mount the cannons on. The area was shady so it was not too hot and the inside hand different info and displays with a small gift shop.

  • The Visitors Center does double duty as a Visitors Center and Museum for both the Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve and the Fort Caroline National Memorial. The fort itself is a recreation and located a short distance down a trail behind the Visitors Center. Although it's currently being repaired due to Hurricane damage, it's well maintained. This site is very much worth visiting to learn about the French colonial presence in the southeast during the 1600s and 1700s.

  • My son loved this fort! We stopped here in the middle of a road trip. The park was a nice place to stretch our legs. The rangers were friendly and helpful and knew how to get my son engaged in the history of the center, as well as tell about the surrounding nature.

  • The trail was shady, and the memorial is interesting. I recommend taking some bug spray if you decide to hike during mosquito season!

  • Great walking trails here and across the street at Spanish Pond. They are currently Aug 2019 doing some renovations but are still open. Stop by on Sundays for a musket firing demonstration. Learn about the French settlements in Florida.
