This is a very large park, great for hiking through the woods. They also have a few rescued animals (including two eagles). The staff here are very knowledgable about the animals and plants that occupy this park. There is also a lake at this park where you often see birds of varying kinds. Amazing to know that is very near... More

As of May 1, 2014, it's free admission! A surprising nature break in one of the most developed counties in Florida. Crushed shell hiking trails through 51 natural acres, and a care and exhibit center for permanently injured wildlife. We were lucky when we were there, they were working with some hawks for their educational programs and we got an... More

This is a great local park for birding (they also have some handicapped birds one can see close up) and just getting away from the hustle and bustle.

This little park is a nice way to spend an hour in amongst the shrubbery. It's quite dense so you have to look carefully to spot the wildlife. We saw a couple of tortoise, butterflies & a hawk. Best of all we stood watching a mahoosive alligator swimming in the lake! Terrific! Like all these small natural areas, sometimes you... More

We decided it would be fun to stop off here on our way back to the airport (we were a bit early for our flight)...imagine our surprise when we got here and it is closed. I guesses I should have been more proactive and checked the hours on the website, but a nature park being closed on the weekend never... More

I had not heard of this attraction until I found it on this site. There is a nice & easy walking trail through the "wilderness". The staff was very friendly but the center was extremely hot - just fans operating. There are many displays inside and there is also a learning center for groups, one of which was there today....

Staff very nice, park not so much. If one desires to experience One turtle and one four inch owl this is your gig, not to speak about my sweaty butt crack. This brought my mind back to the days of being murdered by a chain saw. Check out the picnic area,aswell ,if you would like to see the largest collection... More

While spending the dayin Clearwater we really enjoyed this park. My son and I saw wild peacocks, several rabbits, many turtles and an otter. I was amazed being so close to the city that you could find a place with such a natural setting. Well worth the vsit and $3 entrance fee. They also have a nature center with birds... More
