J.F. Gregory Park is a 335-acre multi-use recreational area that once encompassed a thriving rice plantation and was subsequently bought up by Henry Ford. Named for Ford's plantation foreman, the park was developed beginning in 1998.
In addition to the 3-mile nature trail, today the park includes the Wetland Education Center, a birding trail with tower, the restored Henry Ford home, a 10-acre lake and a covered pavilion. In addition, you can fish, picnic, canoe and play sports here; there are also fitness stations along the trail.
The community of Richmond Hill clearly take pride in this beautiful park, as many different groups participated in its creation and maintenance. The local garden club, historical society, city planners, and private donors collaborated to develop historic landscaping, refurbish the Ford house, construct the trails, birdwatching tower, pavilion and wetlands center. In addition, a bridge and monument to veterans have been constructed.
The J.F. Gregory Park Trail is part of the Coastal Georgia Greenway, a planned trail network which also contains two segments of the Georgia Coast Rail-Trail.
Richmond Hill is southwest of Savannah just off I-95 in southeast Georgia. To get to J.F. Gregory Park, take Ford Avenue to Cedar Street; parking is available.
This park is a great place to take a walk with my two little dogs. I take my dogs for a walk almost every morning.
