Located at 5931 Hammock Road in Sebring Florida, Highlands Hammock State Park is one of Florida´s oldest parks, opening to the public in 1931, this park was established when local citizens came together to promote the hammock as a candidate for national park status. During the Great Depression, just prior to World War II, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed additional park facilities and the beginnings of a botanical garden. Many visitors enjoy bicycling the scenic 3-mile loop (there are many more miles besides the loop) drive or hiking along the park´s nine trails. An elevated boardwalk traverses an old-growth cypress swamp.
