OUR NEIGHBORHOODS WASHINGTON OAKS GARDENS STATE PARK GET TO KNOW As the name suggests, the area is nestled under a hammock of majestic oak trees. A delightful meandering portion of Scenic Highway A1A, The Hammock contains scenic, recreational and historic gems, as well as a number of locally-owned businesses including art galleries, the beachfront luxury Hammock Beach Resort, motels and restaurants to suit many tastes and budgets. HIGHL IGHT S River To Sea Preserve and Varn Park are havens for native plants and animals, as well as natural phenomena. The preserve protects a rapidly disappearing maritime scrub environment and offers walking trails, natural vistas and ecological education opportunities along with public beach access. Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is where a formal garden, a restored greenhouse, gift shop and a self-guided walking tour are just some of the unexpected surprises you will find. The park also offers weekly events as well as the newly added Music in the Gardens series. 24    flaglerchamber.org  •  visitflagler.com GOOD E AT S Atlantic Grille at Hammock Beach 105 16th Rd Palm Coast 386-447-4610 Captain’s BBQ 5862 N Oceanshore Blvd Palm Coast 386-597-2888 JT’s Seafood Shack 5224 N Oceanshore Blvd Palm Coast 386-446-4337 POPUL A R E V ENT Earth Day - Festivities typically include environmental exhibits, live entertainment, children’s section, guided walks, plant sales, gift shop, food and mother nature, of course!
