Green Acres Nature Park

Green Acres provides a mix of recreational opportunities. A playground and open field at the center of the park provide for active recreation, while trails pass through the park’s live oak hammock, offering a place for quiet strolls or bike-riding. The park also protects part of the Hogtown Creek floodplain.
