Nature Trails At Julington Durbin Creek Preserve
A few minutes away, there's the Julington Durbin Creek Preserve. You can head there to meet other residents who like to kayak, watch birds, enjoy the scenery or get access to the nature trails. Julington has some of the best nature trails in Florida and the preserve encompasses a 2000-acre plot of protected land that also boats endangered wildlife.

Timucuan State Park
Though Timucuan is a bit of a trek from Bartram Park (30 minutes by car), it’s well worth it for a day trip of outdoor adventuring. 46,000 acres of coastal wetlands, salt marshes, and hardwood forests await you at this incredible nature preserve. The park is also home to historic sites like Fort Caroline and Kingsley Plantation, both of which offer tours daily.
