Alpine Groves Park is a passive park containing 54.5 acres. It is located in Northwest St. Johns County between the beautiful St. Johns River and William Bartram Scenic & Historic Highway in Switzerland, Florida.
When you enter the park you step back in time as you view the partially restored house and grounds of a turn-of-the-century homestead and citrus grove under moss-draped oak and magnolia trees on a high bluff overlooking the river.
A magnificent butterfly garden, a farm themed playground, picnic area and a winding wooded trail that leads you to hanging swings in a quiet natural setting inviting guests to linger and unwind. Alpine Groves provides a stunning natural landscape for taking photographs, painting, or just relaxing and reading a great book on the farmhouse porch. Families can also enjoy a covered dock for fishing or taking a journey down the St. Johns River from the park canoe/kayak launch.
The park is a designated destination on the Great Florida Birding Trail. You can find eagles, osprey, owls, wood ducks and many other avian species calling the park their home.
Educational field trips can be scheduled through the Parks & Recreation Department Naturalist, AyoLane Halusky at (904) 209-0348. To rent a covered pavilion or reserve a date for a special event such as a wedding, contact Joanne Pius at (904) 209-0328 or email@example.com.
