About Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve

Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a 46,000 acre National Park Service site in Jacksonville, Florida that is part of the largest urban park system in the United States. Cultural and natural resources have a shared history of over 6,000 years in this area, and the National Park Service works to protect and preserve these resources. At Timucuan Preserve, you can discover vast expanses of unspoiled wetlands, the story of the lives of enslaved people on Kingsley Plantation, the history of the Timucua-speaking people that inhabited this land hundreds of years ago, a memorial to French Huguenots that sought religious freedom and wealth, as well as recreational opportunities like kayaking and wildlife viewing.
