It’s free, it’s wild feeling, it’s got a nice abandoned vibe — what’s not to love? Mead Gardens boardwalk is usually empty and a beautiful place for an evening run. It feels like you’re away from the city and exploring nature. You run over little creeks and around the brush. Jog along a little creek and through the woods and wild flowers. Running the jogging trail only takes about 20 minutes, but if you do it twice, it’s quite a bit of a run.
Bring a picnic, bring friends. There is room for everybody and the open spaces leave room for beautiful breezes that roll over the fields. We regularly play impromptu ultimate frisbee on weekends or a late Wednesday night, you’ll see dog walkers and kids passing one another on the paved path. Enjoy some quiet Florida outdoors with families here.
