Make a Nature Date

The best way to enjoy our local waterways is to visit them.

Want to know where to go?

Explore Your Watershed to see where you want to visit first, or check out our Parks Page and pick a new park to visit. You can filter the park search by features to find those with walking trails and wildlife.

Need fun ideas for what to do on your visit?

TRACK Trail is a network of family-friendly outdoor adventures that engage children with nature. Participants can track adventures and even earn prizes by logging their completed explorations on the Kids in Parks online portal. Self-guided trails have been constructed at three different City of Gainesville parks: Hogtown Creek Headwaters Nature Park, Loblolly Woods Nature Park and Morningside Nature Center.
