Eden Gardens State Park - One of the Top Spots in South Walton to Photograph Nature, Kids, Pets.
But Eden Gardens State Park easily rivals the beach with its own form of beauty. Tucked along the Choctawhatchee Bay, with beautiful ancient oaks dripping with Spanish moss and magnificent magnolias—this is just like a secret garden out of a magical children's story.
Just up 395, northbound, towards the Bay—you can't miss it on your left. Pack a camera. Once you are there, it doesn't matter what you shoot. Everything is picture perfect. The spindly branches dance along with the shadows and the sunlight, making this spot one of the top photographer's destinations along the Emerald Coast.
