  • A beautiful place to sit & relax by the water. Well manicured & maintained gardens. There's a ferry to Cumberland Island, an amphitheatre & live music on the weekends, several dining establishments within walking distance & a few spots to cast a line, toss a net or dock a boat. Great place to take the kids or grandma and spend a few hours at play or just reading a book. It's a lovely spot that I gravitate towards on an almost daily basis. Five stars. A classic! If Andy Griffith lived by the sea, he'd live in downtown St.Marys somewhere near this wonderful waterfront park!. :)
  • Very beautiful, and serene. Must visit location if going through historic St. Marys. Best time to visit is 6-8pm due to the wonderful sunsets and amazing photo opportunities. There is even a "Take a book, Leave a book" station as well
