Greetings from Leon County Parks and Recreation!

During COVID-19, many things have changed in our community.

And we want you to enjoy these spaces, but while continuing to maintain a social distance and following our do's and dont's. These rules are put in place to protect our natural beauty, other patrons and pets, and you. Learn more here.
