Arch Creek Park has a significant history. The park was created around a natural limestone bridge formation that was once part of an important Indian trail. It is believed to have first been used by the now-extinct Tequesta Indian Tribe and later by the Seminoles. Arch Creek Park is designated as a Florida State Historical Preserve.
