Ponce De Leon Park is a SWFL hidden gem located in Punta Gorda. It offers things like a man-made beach, boardwalk, fishing pier, playground and picnic areas.

When driving into the park, you drive through protected land that is mostly comprised of mangrove forests. To get up close and personal with the mangrove forests, you can take a stroll on the raised boardwalk which leads out to water.

There are statues of Ponce De Leon scattered throughout the park, along with informational signs about the history of the park.
