Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park
The Fountain of Youth: Original 1565 Site of St. Augustine
Visit the Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park for a fascinating, informative, entertaining tour of the original site of the Nation’s oldest city. Located in the area first explored by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513 and settled by Pedro Menendez de Aviles in 1565, historic St. Augustine is the oldest successful European settlement in the United States. Colonial America started right HERE, 55 years before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, and 42 years before Jamestown! With a long, rich history spanning nearly 500 years, the Fountain of Youth Park will delight and amaze you. Whether you visit for an hour or take all day, this 15 waterfront acre park will provide you with hours of enjoyment.
