Morgan Park

1100 W Hickory St Arcadia, FL 34266

Morgan Park offers 240 acres of Florida's most fabulous preserved land. Colossal cypress trees dominate the skyline and edge the riverbanks. Dahoon Holly, Sabal Palm, and Saw Palmetto are just a few of the native species of plants you will find in this sub-tropical Eden.

You can explore this gorgeous setting viz the miles of hiking trails, and as you wander down these beautiful paths, along the banks of the serene Peace River you may experience the sensation of timelessness. Only an occasional park bench or discovering on of the many antique wooden footbridges, may remind you of where you are. Tranquil and picturesque, this is a delightful place to bring the family. Abundant wildlife can best be viewed in the early morning and early evening. You may get lucky and catch a glimpse of a deer, tread quietly and you may notice a red shoulder hawk resting in an old cypress tree. Also, many alligators have been sighted basking on the banks of the Peace River within the park.

Morgan Park is well known by locals as a favorite picnic spot or place to take a walk, but as of yet this natural jewel largely remains undiscovered, so upon your visit expect a surplus of peace and quiet. Relax, spend some time soaking in the atmosphere of Old Florida. Restrooms are found in the roomy picnic area adjacent to the large pavilion. All picnic shelters are available for rental.

Large Pavilion Rental Fee: Damage Deposit $ 75.00 Rental Fee: $40.00 + $ 3.00 - sales tax = $43.00. Total $118.00. Damage deposit is refundable.
