Located in historic St. Augustine, the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park offers a 15-acre historical site of where St. Augustine came to be in the year 1565. Guests can enjoy seeing stars from the park’s planetarium, exploring the native Timucua village, watching an old cannon fire, visit the two-story Discovery Globe, take a walk through the waterfront outdoor park, and much more.
A must see for anyone visiting the area. Rich in history and culture. I loved walking the grounds. Lovely walk on the dock.

The grounds are beautiful, the history is like nothing else you will find in the area. There are peacocks, even a white one, that roam feely. Engage the guides and follow the pamphlet guide. It will give you the order of the programs that are scheduled so you can see them all without a lag time. They are set up perfectly for being able to go to all with minimal wait time. Most of the staff are more than willing to help you find where to go next and share their knowledge about the area. Also, if you are even a little hungry, eat at the Five Flags restaurant just outside of the park, it is surprisingly excellent !
Drink from the fountain of youth! I'm not sure that it has worked yet, but this attraction is well worth the $15.00 entry fee. The water still runs from the time of Ponce de Leon, plus you can see an example of an authentic Indian village, as well as a lookout tower and blacksmith demonstration. Peacocks wander the grounds in their beautiful splendor. Guides and employees are excellent in their jobs!
This place is great especially if you have children. The reenactments are done very well we especially enjoyed the firing of the cannons. The water from the fountain was interesting, certainly not your everyday drinking water. There is a lot to see with a lot of history. I would recommend this to people who enjoy history or have children. Outside on exhibit I had a close encounter with one of the locations many Peacocks. I have never seen one so close before, he was absolutely beautiful.
