Palm Point Nature Park is located in the tranquil Southeast area of the city at 7401 Lakeshore Dr., Gainesville FL 32641.

The park lies on a peninsula that juts out into the western area of Newnans Lake and covers just over 16 acres. Much of this land is populated by large cypress trees covered in Spanish moss along with some live oaks, and sabal palms.

We visited Palm Point Nature Park to try our luck at fishing in Newnans Lake which is known for having excellent bank fishing due to the deep water just off shore.

Palm Point is also frequented by bird watching enthusiasts since the park is often visited by migratory or local birds. Some of the species commonly seen include egret, ibis, osprey, bald eagle, heron, cormorant, warblers, barred owl, cuckoo, vireo, loons, woodpeckers, wild turkeys, and summer tanager.

Other animals also seen at Palm Point Nature Park include American alligators and a variety of butterfly species. The best place to see butterflies here is at the wildflower demonstration area on the main walking path. They are most plentiful during the fall when the wild flowers are blooming.
