Heritage Park and Gardens

Visit Heritage Park


This beautiful estate, located at 1004 Helvenston Avenue in Live Oak, Florida, was purchased in 2012 by the City of Live Oak using a Florida Communities Trust Grant. A 501c3 non-profit organization known as The Friends of Heritage Park & Gardens leases and maintains the property.

Our mission is to preserve the historic site, to promote tourism, and to provide additional recreational activities for the community. The home and gardens can be rented for private events such as weddings, reunions, corporate retreats and more.

Special events for 2022 include a Veteran’s Memorial Dedication on Nov. 8th and Christmas at Heritage Park, Dec. 10th, which includes tours of the beautifully decorated house and numerous events for children.

Come visit our walking trails, disc golf course, horseshoe courts, landscaped gardens, children’s playground and covered picnic areas.
