The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has announced the redesign of the Florida State Parks website.
In partnership with Visit Florida, the new parks website features tools and information that will be helpful to the state’s visitors.
It also promotes the Florida Park Service, providing visitors with detailed information about all 175 state parks, trails and historic sites.
User experience is improved because of the site’s mobile responsiveness and robust site search tool. It also features more photos and a trip tuner, making it easier for visitors to plan their trips to state parks.
The trip tuner helps to plan a park experience online. It will do the searching for you when you enter your preferences. To try it, visit VisitFlorida.triptuner.com/stateparks/en.
Visitors also can find ways to get involved in state parks through volunteering, and find stories from park rangers, staff and volunteers.
Tourism is the No. 1 industry in the state of Florida, and these new resources showcasing visitor opportunities will help support the industry.
The website also has a new marketing logo for Florida State Parks, which features the Florida panther. The panther symbolizes the Florida Park Service’s role in protection and conservation, while representing the wild, Real Florida found within Florida State Parks.
To learn more about our state’s special places and prized properties, as well as natural resources, visit www.FloridaStateParks.org.
