Lived in Jacksonville my whole life and never been here until today. Such a beautiful place for hiking, picnics, or just getting outside with the family or puppers. Decent amount of trails with with different views of the ecosystem. Not much wild life other than the birds, fish, and occasional crock of a frog.

Trail was a joy! Only one small bridge needed repair. Lovely views of lake. They are working on repairs in some spots. Would do it again.

Lots of confusing trail off shoots with no signs. The area is beautiful though, and the pond has a small resident alligator.

My first nature walk in jax and it was beautiful and very peaceful. Others were very friendly. Trails were laid out well and clean. My dogs staid wet and hydrated in the little creek bends.

Awesome trail hidden away in Jacksonville. The various types of plants and wildlife make for an interesting hike every time. The yoga posts with qr codes are pretty cool too.

Some of the best Casual trails in Town. There was an old mining operation there a long time ago so the whole terrain is actually hilly which is rare in Florida.

The View is great thanks to all the streams, lake, and trail art.

They also have a huge event area with fire and lots of tables.

We have been coming to the Arb for a couple of years now. It just keeps getting better. They keep adding new trails so you have more variety. We take our dog who loves to jump in the creek to cool off.
There are picnic tables and benches in the main entrance. There is a lovely lily pond and beautiful oaks . They have added sculptures which make a great backdrop for photos. I am sure children really get a kick out of them. The only negative I can think of is that there are ticks. The ravine area has a creek and is hilly with tree roots along the trail. There are trails that are quite easy to walk as well as trails that are more of a workout because they have a grade and are long. This park provides a water fountain as well as restrooms.
