(between Moulton Parkway and Alicia Parkway)

Discovered in the early 1970s and dedicated in 1982 by the Orange County Historical Commission, Fossil Reef Park is a large limestone formation containing shells that shed light on a darkened ocean floor as it may have existed millions of years ago. Most fossils are of large scallops, clams, and snails - reminiscent of a tropical environment.
