Naples’ Hidden Gem: Baker Park

Tucked away in the heart of Naples is a pristine escape that combines natural beauty with modern amenities – Baker Park. Nestled alongside the serene Gordon River and spanning a vast 15 acres, this park is an oasis that offers much more than just a green retreat.

Location

Baker Park is conveniently located at 1433 2nd Ave S, Naples, FL 34102. It sits right across the street from the popular Naples Dog Park at 100 Riverside Circle.

Connectivity

Adding to its allure is its seamless connection to the Greenway through a picturesque bridge that arches gracefully over the Gordon River. This not only creates an idyllic setting for photo ops but also extends the park’s reach and accessibility.

Trail and Views

The Baker Park Loop is one of the highlights of this park. This 1.3-mile trail promises a breathtaking view of the Gordon River. As you walk, jog, or even cycle along this trail, the shimmering water, the rustling leaves, and the melodic chirping of the birds create a symphony of nature that’s bound to rejuvenate your senses. And yes, your furry friends are welcome here, too!

Features

What sets Baker Park apart from many other parks is its array of features:

Water Adventures

Whether you’re keen on kayaking or just want to dock your boat for a little while, the park’s kayak launch and boat dock await you.

Fitness and Recreation

An outdoor fitness facility ensures you never miss a workout, even amidst nature. The bike paths add to the fitness options.

Relaxation Spots

The sunrise terrace is the perfect spot to greet the morning sun. The grassy knoll serves as a serene spot for picnics, reading, or just lounging.

Dining and Entertainment

With three picnic shelters equipped with BBQ grills, al fresco dining becomes an experience. If you’re planning a big event, these shelters are available for rental. The performance stage, also available for rental, makes it an ideal location for concerts, plays, and community events.

For the Kids

Little ones have plenty to look forward to – playgrounds, a splash pad, and an adventurous climbing play area.

Hours

Baker Park is open to the public every day from 6 am to 10 pm, ensuring ample time for early birds and night owls alike.

If you find yourself in Naples and are looking for a perfect blend of relaxation, recreation, and natural beauty, Baker Park is a must-visit. This hidden gem has something for everyone, making it a beloved spot for locals and visitors alike.
