I went back the next day and saw more broken glass in another parking area there. It's obvious I wasn't the only one. Take all valuables with you when exploring there. I'll be leaving my car unlocked if I go back.
  • Spent the day painting with First Coast Plein Air Painters. The Dutton Island Preserve was beautiful. Wonderful experience to see the Florida's wild life up close. On the second day painting our painting group had more trouble because it was loaded with insects in the marshes. None of our insect repellent seemed to be working. You are best to go on a day when there is a breeze blowing.
  • AWESOME. Hidden Gem in town! Great for kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, etc etc! The creeks go all over the place.
  • I love this park! Great for biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing and more.
