Palm Point Park

Reaching out from the surrounding shoreline, Palm Point is a true gem among Gainesville’s Nature Parks. Palm Point’s unique geographic location makes it a magnet for some of the most spectacular migratory and local bird populations. Brilliant wildflowers attract many native butterfly species, while Newnans Lake provides excellent opportunities for alligator sightings and some of the best bank fishing this close to town.
