Exploring Dickson Azalea Park in Orlando

I was out exploring local parks and was very happy to come across Dickson Azalea Park.

Dickson Azalea Park in Orlando is only a few blocks long, meandering along a Fern Creek making its way towards Mayor Carl Langford Park.

The park consists of a trail with benches scattered about offering peaceful views of the wooded area.
You can find parking along the boarding Rosegarden Dr.

I find the park to be a hidden oasis. It's lush and a visual delight when wandering about.

Dickson Azalea Park is a great park to sit and just be. Take in the sights and enjoy the sounds of the creek and the birds.

I've noticed this is a popular park for early morning and sunset photo shoots. The light coming through the trees is beautiful.

While I look forward to exploring the Orange County Parks for longer walks in the woods, I'm happy knowing there is a place close by when I need a quick nature escape.

What I enjoy: It's a hidden gem below the street
Cool feature: This area used to be a watering hole for cattle ranchers back in the day.
