Ormond Beach is bordered by the Halifax River and the Atlantic Ocean and home to more than a dozen parks, as well as several lakes, springs, and “mini“ parks. Miles of coastline offer sunning and relaxation, shelling, swimming and strolling the beautiful surf. The Birthplace of Speed Park is an oceanfront park that’s open sunrise to sunset. This park offers a beachside pavilion and picnicking facilities, and is the perfect setting for many weddings, family reunions and other gatherings. Central Park is one of the major parks in Ormond Beach. It actually contains four parks that total just over 149 acres. Within the park sits a large, scenic lake that offers fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake, but there’s also a pier available for relaxing and fishing. Two gazebos, plenty of picnic tables, grills and pavilions are also within the park. A labyrinth is located on Hammock Lane - and is the newest addition to the park. You’ll also find tennis courts, a walking-biking path, playground area, basketball courts, plenty of parking space and much more in Central Park.

Bicentennial Park is a county park in Ormond Beach that offers 40 acres with tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts, a scenic boardwalk, fishing pier, nature trails, picnic areas, pavilions and a children’s playground. Ormond Tomb Park is a serene, 13-acre park with historic markers throughout the park. Just a few miles from Ormond Beach is Bulow Creek State Park, which preserves one of the largest remaining stands of Southern Live Oak Forest along the East Coast of Florida. The park contains over 3,000 acres of upland forest, hardwood swamp, salt-marsh and tidal creeks. Getting to Bulow Creek State Park from the town of Ormond Beach is an attraction in itself, as it’s one of the most scenic drives in the area. Historic Tomoka State Park is located just three miles north of Ormond Beach and is the site of a Timucuan Indian Settlement discovered in 1605 by Spanish explorers. Ormond Beach is also home to the Memorial Art Museum and Gardens, a four-acre botanical garden with native flora such as banana plant, sago palm and bamboo.

Also considered a park, as well as a state monument is Bulow Plantation Ruins, a 150-year-old historic plantation that once grew sugar cane, cotton, rice and indigo. A scenic walking trail winds around the sugar mill ruins, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Visitors also see the ruins of the former plantation house and slave cabins and an interpretive center tells the plantation’s story. Bulow Plantation has picnic facilities, boat ramp access to Bulow Creek for canoes and small boats. Fishing is permitted from the dock or boats.
