Located in historic St. Augustine, the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park offers a 15-acre historical site of where St. Augustine came to be in the year 1565. Guests can enjoy seeing stars from the park’s planetarium, exploring the native Timucua village, watching an old cannon fire, visit the two-story Discovery Globe, take a walk through the waterfront outdoor park, and much more.
This trip was a step back into time. 10 co-workers trecked down here to see the sights. The place was from the sixties. The technoligy was state of the art 40 years ago. The "old visual" could use an update. the plantitarium was old school. The affects need updated. I bet the globe was really cool back in 1965. With all that said we had a blast; we all said we would come back.

I have always wanted to see the Fountain of Youth. I finally went with friends from out of town. We tasted the water from the spring. It was awful. It tasted like sulfur, magnesium and heavy iron. Left a bad taste in your mouth. Was absolutely horrible. The rest of the park was nice. The staff was great. If you go, don't drink the water.
We visited the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park. They had the fountain discovered by Ponce de Leon. The had a planetarium, cannon firing, and archaeological dig site. A great experience!

We visited the Pounce de Leon's Fountain of Youth and there was so much to see and so much history to take it. I would recommend having plenty of time to see the all shows and walk thru all the historical locations. It’s a lot of walking around too so wear comfortable shoes. It's like going back in time seeing how the first settlers to St. Augustine lived. Make sure you go to the fountain of youth and get a drink from the fountain. They shoot off cannon and have a demonstration where they fire some rifles. If it's a hot day I do recommend bringing some extra water so you stay hydrated. Well worth the visit!
