Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda FL

Long park along the Peace River where it flows into Charlotte Harbor. Angled just right for those beautiful Florida sunsets.

Features include tennis court and fishing pier, several benches to rest in, a gazebo by the shore where musicians perform. Covered picnic area by restrooms a great idea. Seems to be the town gathering place, pleasant people who say hello as they pass you.

Impressive Ponce de Leon monument, he supposedly anchored along here in 1513 and met hostile Calusa tribe.
