It sits on the St. Lucie River and contains varioius ecosystems full of medicinal plants! The endemic (only growing in Florida) Sky Blue Lupine (^pic above!) is blooming ON TOP of the Indian burrial ground right now, with an Ospray and her nest guarding overhead…. it is truly a spiritual experience! $10/person, children are welcome (I don’t know the rules about pets at this park, but I don’t mind!!) Bring a camera, bottle of water, and notepad!
