Events at the Fountain of Youth Park
Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park features 15 acres that overlook the Matanzas River and St. Augustine Inlet. In addition to that ever-popular water view, the exotic peacocks wandering the grounds will create an event setting that will linger in the memories of your family and friends forever.
Our elegant Events Pavilion is 3,000 square feet and will accommodate up to 300 standing guests or 150 guests seated at tables. An 8 passenger electric vehicle is available with a driver for your convenience. There is a private hair/make-up/changing room complete with sofa and chair, and the caterer’s kitchen and prep area seals the deal with its triple sink, double microwaves, large table, commercial refrigerator and stainless steel prep area. You can even rent tables and chairs from us for your event
Perhaps you'd like more of a water view. Our 600 foot Founder's Riverwalk is a new pier that reaches out over beautiful salt marsh with spectacular views all the way around!
The property remains open during normal business hours, so if you choose to have a daytime event, there will be other guests on the property. For the daytime ceremonies, your guest list can include up to 100 people, but food and drink are not permitted. Evening events can accommodate up to 300 guests, tents, and food and drink galore. The Fountain of Youth Properties, Inc., will provide an approved list of event planners if you like.
Ours is an affordable venue, a gorgeous property, and a unique opportunity to create memories. Come check out the park as a tourist first; we know you’ll fall in love with it. Try our Navigators Planetarium – you’ll journey under the historic night sky and learn how explorers long ago found their way to Florida. Other exhibits include the Spring House, Discovery Globe, Timucua Indian Village, Spanish Cannon Firings, Native American Christian Burial Grounds, First Encounter, and the Archaeology Exhibit. Good luck deciding which peacock is more vibrant – the blue or the white!
In addition to everything mentioned above, there is the excellent energy factor – Native American, Christian, animal, Spanish, Floridian, and that of Magnolia Street (one of the most photographed streets in America) – and onsite parking!
Don’t miss out ladies. Be sure to add the Fountain of Youth to your venues-to-visit list!
