This is a part of the Timucuan Preserve Ecological and Historical complex. It is a park to see nature and has a trail to the marsh area, or you can continue on for a round trip of 6 miles to Fort Caroline. The hike I took to the marsh was 3 miles round trip, and only saw a few birds, but the area is quiet and serene.
Take Monument Rd off Hwy 115 to Mount Pleasant Rd to the park. Entry is free and operated by NPS and state of Florida.

Address: 12713 Ft Caroline Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32225
