Palm Point Nature Park

Nestled on the outskirts of Gainesville is Palm Point Nature Park, a 16.1 acre nature park, and a quiet, little hidden gem with trails covered in big cypress, oak and palm trees.

But the real attraction comes when visitors walk down the shaded, moss-covered trails to the panoramic views of Newnans Lake. Birds, wildlife and beautiful wildflowers can be seen along the paths.

The lake offers benches along the shoreline for a picnic, to do some bank fishing, or for just sitting down and enjoy the calming sounds of the water splashing against the rocks.

Palm Point Nature Park is open 365 days a year from dawn until dusk. Go check it out for when you need a little time to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature here in the heart of Florida.
