A number of state parks exist in and around Palm
Coast, but the most spectacular by far is the
Oaks State Garden. Less than 2 miles north
of the Villas, Washington Oaks includes a large
rose garden, several exotic species of plants,
enormous live oaks, and a shady citrus grove.
Other parks in the area include Gamble
Rogers State Recreation Area and the Bulow
Plantation Ruins Historic State Park.
