There are 175 Florida state parks, trails and historic sites encompassing nearly 800,000 acres of our state’s lands. Locations range from Pensacola to Jacksonville and south to Naples and Key West, meaning that no matter where you live, you’re within an hour of a state park. Our parks are as diverse as the people who live here, offering a wide range of experiences to suit the needs of every Floridian. More than 1,000 people work in full-time positions at our state parks, while thousands more work seasonally. We have both part-time and full-time positions, meaning even those with a tight schedule can work at a state park. Park rangers often move on to other positions in the environmental profession, and your experiences in the field provide a vital foundation as you move both within and outside the Florida Park Service. And what could be better than spending your day in …the Real Florida?
