At Over 250 Years Old, The Treaty Oak Is One Of The Oldest Trees In Florida
While it might be a tiny park in the middle of downtown Jacksonville, Jesse Ball DuPont Park has so much more than what meets the eye. Not only is this vibrant park a nice break from the city life in Florida, but it also features one of the oldest trees in the state. You’ve probably seen The Treaty Oak in photos or on Instagram, but if you’ve never seen it up close and in person—now’s the time.
