This was my first visit to Tillie Fowler Regional Park to photograph the trees. I had been here before many years ago when we photographed a family for our Photographers For Freedom project. The park is located directly across from NAS Jacksonville off of Hiway 17. We had just experienced a heavy rain and the trails were very wet. There is a large network of nature trails through mixed hardwoods and pines. There are remnants of an old brick road system from a military facility that was originally here.
The park is very large and there is a nature center located at the north end. You could spend a whole day here, exploring and finding lots of interesting trails. It's nice to have this resource so close to the city.
