The Ponce Preserve offers something for everyone.
Located eight miles south of Daytona Beach in the Town of Ponce Inlet,
visitors can explore 40-acres extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the
Halifax River. Take a stroll down the boardwalk to the fishing pier,
or meander along nature trails to the ocean dunes. Enjoy the picnic pavilion
and nature-themed playground, then head over to see an ancient Indian midden
and the 400-year old Live Oak at the base of the Green Mound. Fitness stations
along the trail are perfect for the athletically incline. Nature enthusiasts
can take to the wildlife observation tower and might spot threatened and
endangered species that make the park home. Of note, Atlantic Avenue has
handicapped parking for beach-going visitors. The park is open year-round
from dawn to dusk.
