What: An Evening of Stargazing at Eden Garden State Park
When: Friday, May 27, 2016
Time: 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm

The Friends of Eden Gardens State Park present An Evening of Stargazing on Saturday, May 27 from 7-9:30pm.

Hosted by the Northwest Florida Astronomy Club, this event is Free with paid park admission. It was a great time last year, and we're hoping for clear skies this year! Come join us and bring kids, a friend, or any amateur astronomers you may know.

We hope to see you here for this spectacular event! Come out for a beautiful night with your friends and family and enjoy the night sky.


Our favorite SoWal State Park for taking a break from the beach is the spectacular Eden Gardens State Park on Tucker Bayou in Point Washington. Drive straight up Scenic Hwy 395 from Seagrove Beach, across Hwy 98 and you'll see the entrance up on the left.

The focal point of the park is the Wesley house, a beautifully renovated, two-story house with elegant white columns and wraparound porch complete with rocking chairs. Surrounded by moss-draped live oaks and ornamental gardens, the Wesley house inspires visions of hoop skirts and landed gentry. It's a favorite place for weddings and other events, and includes a covered stage for performances, a large screened pavilion, and bricked areas under the oaks for giant event tents.
