Cradle Creek Preserve
Cradle Creek Preserve, the newest of Jacksonville Beach's parks, is 43.3-acres of primarily undisturbed land along the Intracoastal Waterway.
You can explore this special place by walking a system of nature trails and elevated boardwalks. Pause and enjoy the panoramic views from the observation platform overlooking Pablo Creek Estuary or from the canoe and kayak landing pier. You can learn about the natural surroundings and rich history of the preserve through a series of educational signs.
Read about the preserve (PDF), and browse an inventory of species of mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, birds, and plants.
