Local Outdoor Activities for Kids Under $5!

(Published on - 6/18/2020 4:22:17 PM)


As the community continues to slowly open up, we know your kids are looking to get out of the house!  But maybe COVID has tightened your budget and you still want your family to be safe as you start to venture out?  Look no further than this list of local spots in Palm Coast that will guarantee a fun day AND are budget friendly!


Bing's Landing

This park has so much to offer!  You can fish, boat, learn some history, and grab a bite to eat at Captain's BBQ while picnicking outside and watching the boat drive by! 


Washington Oaks State Park 

$5 is all you need for a day of fun at Washington Oaks!  Saddle up the bikes and go on their bike trails.  Or go on foot and stroll through their gorgeous gardens that feature ponds, bridges, and a fairy tale rose garden.  Their oak and magnolia trees shade the area as you go!  A well hidden fishing area on the Matanzas river fosters a calm environment to teach your kids to fish for the first time or maybe just maybe get a conversation in with your teenager! Then head across the street over to Washinton Oaks' stretch of beach area! The kids will enjoy the rock formations during low tide! 


Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park

This state park features a fun walking trail filled with tons of history.  The ruins tell a story of how sugar used to be made and the plantation's history.  The kids can touch the ruins directly while enjoying the outdoors! Entry is $4 per car!


Jungle Hut Park

This beach is perfect if your kids aren't swimmers and you're looking for a quiet place!  During low tide, the rock formations can keep them occupied with the wonder of small ocean wildlife. Use the dune walkover to spot bird varieties of every kind!   Facilities are nearby, which are perfect for new families looking to get out without being overwhelmed by the crowd! 


Marineland Beach

Are your kids active in the water?  This flat-sanded beach is perfect for running on and the waves here are great for boogie boarding and surfing! There are rock formations, so swim shoes are recommended! 


Recommended Public Playgrounds:

Seminole Woods Neighborhood Park - Fairly new playground that is completely fenced in, with picnic tables, gazebo, and facilities very close by!   Throw a football or kick around a soccer ball in the open field when its not in use!  


Belle Terre Park - Open playground that features 3 tennis courts and the Freida Zamba public pool to splash in on a hot day! 


Wadsworth Park - a great stop before going to Flagler Beach!  Features 2 playgrounds canoe launch, picnic tables, a boardwalk and so much more!
