O'Leno State Park take pride in being one of the first state parks in Florida. Developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's, this beautiful place promises to offer you a unique outdoor experience. With an exclusive placement along the Santa Fe River, the park offers its visitors a great chance to unwind and enjoy the life outside of the crowded city.
There is a $5 fee for every vehicle, as long as there are no more than eight people in it, $4 for single occupant vehicles and $2 for pedestrians or cyclists. O'Leno State Park is known for its sinkholes, hardwood hammocks, river swamps and sand hills. You can choose to take part in adventurous activities or spend the day relaxing and breathing in the fresh air.
Take Fido for a hike on one of the three most popular trails: the River Trail, the Limestone Trails or Parener's Branch. Explore the pine forest along the river and discover the "River Sink" - a place where the river sinks in the ground. Watch out for alligators, which occasionally make an appearance. You can also take a look at turtles - they love laying around in the sun.
Furthermore, as long as your pet behaves well around other people and animals, nothing is stopping the two of you from having a great time at O'Leno State Park. Make sure you keep Fido on a six-foot leash at all times and always carry a waste bag in your pocket or backpack. Maintaining the park clean is a responsibility that every dog owner should take.
There is a picnic area available, playgrounds for the kids, equipped with swings and slides and swimming areas as well. However, pets are not allowed anywhere near the youth areas, primitive camps or swimming spots. O'Leno State Park is open all year long for adventure seekers and for people who want to enjoy a long hike with their furry companion. Discover this amazing location!
