St Augustine Parks

Spring Break is the perfect time to explore all the pocket parks, preserves and playgrounds you usually speed by on the way to work, soccer practice or back home again. Even after living on the First Coast for 18 years, we still haven’t spent time in all the parks we want to!

This spring, I’m determined to whittle away at my list of parks in St. Augustine. As I review a park, I’ll turn it into a hyperlink. You can also browse by image and excerpt below! If you don’t see your favorite on the list, point me in the right direction!

Staying Hydrated in Florida’s Heat

Day in & day out, I mostly drink water but if we’ll be spending a lot of time outside, I know I need a hydration boost! Instead of reaching for Gatorade or something sweetened with sugar, I bring a bottle of Noble juice.

It’s 100% Florida juice- y’all know how I feel about supporting local companies! I can get zippy tangerine juice or go for greens when I need some extra energy. Check out your local Publix’ selection and pack one the next time you go exploring!
