One of the biggest questions that I get asked by new families moving to the area is “where are the best parks?” so I’m going to tell you a few of my favorites.

Hey Guys! I’m Megan Smalley with the Kim Devlin Team in beautiful St Augustine Florida and today we are diving into the best parks to bring the kiddos. With all the technology distracts kids have these days, parks are important, not only to get the kids outside but also for my own sanity.
Now you may be moving to a community that has a playground or community pool but there are some really great public parks that are worth exploring too.  First let me tell you, there are DOZENS of parks in St Johns County area, but I am going touch on three that are closer to the historic and beach areas.

The 3 Best Parks In St. Augustine

Firstly,  Treaty Park, and my family’s personal fav!

Treaty Park is located off of Wildwood rd, is a 47-acre complex that is home to Paws Dog Park and Robert Laryn Skate Park. This park is home to a 3 acre lake with nearly 3 miles of walking trails and a boardwalk for some catch and release fishing. There is an ADA compliant playground located next to the main pavilion, which is equipped with picnic tables, horseshoe pits, and charcoal grills. This park truly has something for everyone in the family!

Secondly, Ron Parker Park

Ron Parker Park, (maybe a little bit of a tongue twister there) is located on beautiful Anastasia Island just a few blocks from the beach. This is a smaller park but it is still home to some great amenities, like a dog park, tennis courts, and basketball courts. This park has two playgrounds, one for the little kids and another for the bigger kids.

Lastly, Davenport Park

Davenport Park, located at the corner of San Carlos and San Marco Ave right next to the main branch of our Saint Johns county public library. If you are local are visited at one time, you may now that this is where the landmark Carousel sat for 25 years.The carousel is no longer there but there is still a great little park here, that is fully fenced so you can sit and relax while your kiddos play in a safe and contained area. This park is home to Kourtney’s Korner which is a completley handicap accessible playground.

So those are my 3 park picks for today – when the weather gets warmer, we’ll talk about some parks with fun water elements to them because who doesn’t love splash parks!!

If you have any questions, send them my way and I’ll provide you the information to get the answers you need.  I’m always happy to help!

I hope you enjoyed the St. Augustine parks tour.
