  • Washington Oaks Gardens State Park hosts three Coquina Rock Beach Walks in the spring of 2019: on Saturday, March 16, Friday, March 29, and Monday, April 15, 2019.

    The tour is led by park volunteer Jim Gleason and takes visitors along the beach to explore the second-largest outcropping of coquina rock on the Atlantic Coast. Tour participants will learn all about the geological makeup of coquina and its role in the beach ecosystem. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable hiking shoes suitable for rough terrain.

    Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is 425 acres of coastal preserve that ranges from rare coquina rock formations along the Atlantic to the tidal marshes of the Matanzas River and the historic formal gardens within the live oaks, magnolias, and coastal scrub of the beachside hammock.
