Morningside Nature Park Center and Farmstead
3540 E. University Avenue Gainesville, FL 32641
Since 1970, Morningside Nature Center has been Gainesville’s flagship nature park, protecting the largest stand of longleaf pine savanna remaining within city limits. This 268 acre preserve has an extensive network of hiking trails, enabling you to enjoy walks of anywhere from a half mile to six miles. But its biggest draw is open September through April: the Living History Farm, ten acres of historic buildings, livestock, and costumed interpreters recreating Florida’s pioneer days in the 1870s.
