About Frederica Park
Frederica Park is located off of Lawrence Road at the north end of St. Simons Island. A four-acre play field complex surrounded by viewing berms is available for soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, rugby, and other field sports. Organized games are scheduled through the Glynn County Parks and Recreation Department. At all other times, locals and visitors can throw frisbee, fly kites, or play their own informal field games. Much of the park is devoted to the Alice Richards Botanical Trail, where native plant species have been re-introduced to land that was used for timber farming for many years. Adjacent to the playfield are two picnic shelters, public restrooms, benches, a children’s playground, a dog park and hard surface jogging/running trail around the play field. There is paved parking for up to 75 cars.

About Saint Simons Island
There’s something for everyone to explore on St. Simons Island — pristine, natural beaches and marshlands, abundant wildlife, historic sites and monuments, parks and outdoor recreation, world-class accommodations, fishing, watersports, boutique shopping and delectable dining. Yet you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to your own private beach town getaway, a hidden gem of a casual coastal paradise that has remained untouched by overzealous development and commercial activity. Surrounded on all sides by historic Southern Oaks draped in Spanish Moss that have survived for hundreds of years, expansive marshlands and waterways, sandbars, and the Atlantic ocean in the background, St. Simons Island will capture your heart and imagination like nowhere else on Earth.
