  • This park is small but it is great for a few hours away. It has Lady Liberty (a large tree) and of course the remains of the Senator (an even larger tree that was burned down by some lady). It has a g...  more »

  • Nice, enjoyable walk through nature on a well maintained walk way. The history plaques are very informative and fun to read, although the trail is not very long at all. Don't expect the trail to take you over 20 minuets. The kids playground area is very nice and has a lock on the gate to prevent the little ones from running too far out of sight, or into the parking lot. The equipment looks very new and well maintained. It's a very nice little park to take the kids to for a little bit and a nice piece of history to learn about.
  • Nice little playground for young kids! It also has a trail next to it that's good for running or just walking on. It's quiet and secluded which means I'd only go there with someone else, not just myself and my small kids.
  • I will start by saying if you dont rate this with 5 stars, you are probably disconnected from nature. This park is beautiful and educational. The swamp is full of cypress, live oak, sweet guns and numerous other species. But the most impressive of them all is now lady Liberty. As unfortunate as it is to have lost the senator, this area should be grateful to still have such a magnificent tree in its midst. It is literally a blast from the past seeing how large the tree is. Do yourself a favor and check the park out.
  • It's just not the same after some crack head burnt down the old original tree that I used to visit in high school.
  • It's a shadow of its former self since the Senator (Big Tree) was burned to the ground in 2012. Still, a nice memorial and trailhead for the Cross Seminole Trail.
