The Torreya State Park is a state park, historic site, and a National Natural Landmark in Bristol, Florida. It is considered as one of the most scenic places in the state, filled with things to see and do.

Named after the Torreya tree, an extremely rare plant species that only grows on the Alapachicola River bluffs, the Torreya State Park is historic for being the site where the first government road met the river. The road was built in 1828 and around the time that the Civil War was already in bloom, it also served as an important point.

The Torreya State Park also features the historic 1849 Gregory House, built by James Gregory, a planter and plantation owner. The house was moved to its current location in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
