Shore Acres State Park by Tyler Shaddix

Perched on a scenic bluff above the Pacific Ocean, Shore Acres began as a private estate with luxurious gardens featuring trees, shrubs, and flowering plants brought from around the world aboard the sailing ships of pioneer lumberman and shipbuilder Louis J. Simpson. In 1942, Simpson’s beloved Shore Acres was purchased by the state of Oregon for use as a public park. The park offers a spectacular view of rugged seascapes, towering storm waves, and glimpses of migrating whales from December through June. Plus, the restored formal gardens feature year-round displays of floral and scenic beauty. (Coos Bay, Oregon, USA)
