Within walking distance of downtown, this scenic green square offers a place to play and a place to relax, with a bit of local history thrown in. The park is the former parade ground and barracks location for the East Florida Seminary, and a historic marker offers details. The magnolias are blooming, the playground equipment looks nice and new, and the little turtle benches for kids are a nice touch.
