Visitors will also explore the 600 ft Founders' Riverwalk, affording striking views of the lights of downtown St. Augustine.The Shadows of the Past guided tour is mysterious and intriguing, since the park is built upon the remains of thousands of Native Americans who lived there before the Spanish landed and colonized the area.
