In the heart of urbanized west Gainesville, Cofrin Nature Park features a half-mile long hiking trail, tennis court, playground and pavilion. Once a horse farm, much of this park is returning to forest through natural succession. Large hardwood trees are found in the forest along picturesque Beville Heights Creek, and seepage wetlands on the slopes above the creek support lush growths of ferns and wildflowers.
