Eden Gardens State Park

181 Eden Gardens Road
850-267-8320

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.

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.

Beautiful place. There's an antebellum home that has tours. Trees that must be 300 years old. Its like stepping back in time. They do weddings here.
