Eden Gardens State Park

181 Eden Gardens Road

Eden Gardens State Park contains approximately 163 acres of land that was part of the historic Wesley homestead. The focal point of this park is the beautifully renovated, two-story house with elegant white columns and wrap around porch. In a setting of moss-draped live oaks, the 1897 mansion recalls a prosperous era before the virgin forests of longleaf pine and cypress were exhausted in this part of the state. In 1963, Lois Maxon bought and renovated the home, creating a showplace for her family heirlooms and antiques. Visitors can come and enjoy a guided tour of the Wesley House, meander through the gardens, bring a picnic or go fishing off the dock in Tucker Bayou.

Beautiful. Didn't take the tour of the mansion, but my partner and my grandson did. They thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The grounds were beautiful. Read about the history and they told me about the history, very interesting. Visited the shops and farmer's market in Seaside the same day. I would recommend visiting Eden Gardens State Park when visiting Seaside.

I had my engagement pictures done here, on my first visit. The grounds are really beautiful. The people are all very friendly and helpful and even tell you a little about the place. There's a dock you can walk out onto the water on, a pretty fountain in front of the big white house, pretty flower gardens and much more! We didn't get to walk the entire park, but spent an hour looking around one small section. I wish we had more time to see all of it.

Beautiful place. I have been here for a few weddings, and would recommend this spot to anyone looking to get married in the area. The place is absolutely stunning, so be sure to bring your camera along if you want to explore.

Lovely place to visit. The grounds are kept so beautiful. Touring the house takes a little planning as they only allow so many people at one time, but we were so glad we did. Have been there twice and would like to visit again in the spring when the gardens are in bloom.

It's a really nice state park. Picnic tables with charcoal grills are available. Parking is easy and plentiful, too - $4 per car, FYI, if you're headed toward the nature trail, area. Good hiking path, mostly flat, and the signs are easy to read, so you won't feel lost. Good thing to do with kids, or dogs, though leashes are a must with the latter.
