Ponce de Leon Park was named for Juan Ponce de Leon, the Spanish conquistador who made the first known voyage to Florida. He was supposedly searching for the legendary Fountain of Youth. When he landed on what he thought was another island in 1513, he named it La Florida. Juan Ponce de Leon was also the first governor of Puerto Rico. Tallahassee is located in Leon county which was also named for Juan Ponce de Leon. This park is one of the chain of parks that run through downtown along Park Avenue. It is directly across the street from the U.S. Bankruptcy Courthouse I showed you yesterday.
