There are great walking paths through the park - some of incline and some just good and long - the trees provide a wonderful scent when blooming and the docent led tastings are also GREAT!

We were in the area visiting friends and we stopped off to see the oranges. It wasn't orange "season" but had a great time at the lemon taste test inside the visitor center. A lot of great history too and beautiful grounds.

The tour is really cool and the views are great. There is also a little museum and a darling gift shop with some very cool citrus themed and locally made items. Great place to get a gift and supports the local state park.
