Step into a world of adventure. Explore our woodlands, wetlands, arboretum, garden pond, butterfly gardens and much more. Listen to the birds singing, leaves rustling in the wind, turkeys gobbling and grogs chirping. Joyfully learn about our native wildlife. Come see, smell and touch nature in this beautiful enhanced environment located in Fleming Park. We do weddings, too. On your special day, Jackson County Parks and Recreation invites you to celebrate your wedding ceremony the way you have always dreamed it would be…Your alter is the bridge over the waterfall of a garden pond. Lily pads silently float on the water's surface. Butterflies flutter through flower gardens of vivid hues and songbirds chorus as they, too, celebrate this special union.
