Opened 2005, Samuel Butts Youth Archeological Park is named after Daytona Beach resident Samuel Butts, who collected prehistoric bones of humans and animals at the site for 20 years. He found spear joints, bone tools and pottery fragments left by Native Americans more than 5,000 years ago. After the park officially opened, Butts requested that the place be dedicated to children to study the environment and the area’s history. Today, this historical park includes a lake and is a sanctuary for migratory waterfowl. Amenities include: parking, restrooms, fishing pier, trail for walking and bicycling, and pavilion. A historical site, the park was funded in part by the Florida Department of State and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The park's hours are from dawn to dusk.
