Bird Island Park is an innovative, passive park to be enjoyed by all generations and offers ample opportunities for small group gatherings, theatre events, children’s programming, picnicking, bird watching, strolling and relaxation. Designed by Bobby Weed, the park illustrates the ecosystems of northeast Florida and highlights native flora and fauna. The landscape includes dune and wetland areas, with educational signage, and interactive art sculptures.
Bird Island Park features an entrance gazebo, followed by a winding trail which leads park guests past water features and examples of native hammock. Visitors will enjoy a hedged sea turtle maze with four beautifully crafted benches in the center. The park also features a story telling area with benches and a small stage with a labyrinth center enhanced by shade trees. There is a boardwalk that surrounds the pond with Bird Island in the center, a second gazebo on the waterfront, a play area for the children and a wheelchair accessible sidewalk the winds around the entire park.
