Eden Gardens State Park is a 163 acres Florida State Park and historic site located in Point Washington, south of Freeport, off U.S. 98 on CR 395, in northwestern Florida. The park is centered around the Wesley house, a two story mansion virtually surrounded by white columns and verandas. The house is notable for its furnishings, especially examples of late 18th century French furniture. The site has various gardens, numerous large, old southern live oak trees, and frontage on Tucker Bayou.

Recreational Activities

The park has such amenities as a historic 1897 house filled with antiques where tours are given from 10:00am through 3:00pm on the hour every hour Thursday through Monday, (the house is closed on Tue. and Wed. for maintenance). There are beautiful ornamental gardens with heritage roses, camellias, azaleas, as well as a butterfly garden and a reflection pond filled with water lilies and large koi. For those that like the more natural look, there are nature trails as well as picnic areas and a fishing dock.
