Its free. Its beautiful. And historic. It doesn't look like much but it has a replica of the fort that used to be there and many beautiful nature trails! We went and it was absolutely free.

Neat bit of history. Jacksonville's contribution to the National Parks System.

Fort Caroline was the first successful European settlement(1564) in America, predating the Spanish settlement of St. Augustine (1565) by one year. Fort Caroline was founded by French Huguenots (Protestants) as a refuge for the religious bretheren who were being unjustly persecuted, and in some cases murdered, in France. The Spanish ultimately, sent an expedition to Fort Caroline and destroyed the fort, but that wasn't the end of the story.

Fort Caroline is part of the Fort Caroline National Monument is partly reconstructive fort. This is a long walk out with very little disability access should not attempt if raining or damp. Disability parking is locate at the visitor center. You will need about 1 hour to visit and walk out to the site.
