Savannas State Park is what remains of what used to be 10 miles of savannas, which are basically grasslands occupied by clusters of trees.

Many species, including many endangered varieties such as the Florida Scrub Jay and gopher tortoise call this beautifully preserved park home.

Enjoy a great educational experience on the natural ecosystems within the park or hike or horseback ride along one of the nature trails to observe interesting wildlife and plant life.

Canoe trips are sometimes available when the water level is high enough, allowing visitors to explore Florida’s largest freshwater marsh.

If you and the family enjoy nature and you’re looking for an educational getaway, visit Savannas Preserve State Park and get a unique and lovely outdoor experience.

Scoot on over to nearby Jensen Beach and you just might see some brand new baby loggerhead turtles. Don't touch, though. They are protected and the park rangers will not be happy with you.
