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.
We all know this is a myth, but we did see the actual Fountain of Youth and could drink from it we chose to. There was an admission to the park which contains a small theatre, the Fountain of Youth, a small village, and a cannon firing every hour. There is also a gift shop and a place to get a quick snack or drink. For us, it wasn't worth the admission price, other than to say we were at the Fountain of Youth.
Great place to learn history and see how the first US settlement lived. Very clean and the staff was very friendly. Love the peacocks.
Beautiful archeological park with knowledgeable employees like Diego and the lady from the fountain. They took the time and explained to us with detail the history of St. Agustin and the fountain and depicted each history event with excitment and detail. There are kid friendly peacocks everywhere that you can feed which my 2 year old loved doing. They recreated the city as if Ponce de Leon just arrived. This park is absolutely beautiful.

More than just a fountain. Of crouse we drank the water, even brought some home. So much more to see and do. We really enjoyed the park. The peacocks were certainly a highlight, wandering loose about the grounds. Well worth the money.
