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

Nice park for 3 dollars per person and many animals to see in the wild. Really helpful workers . A old vulture from the 80's that is pretty tame. Nice wide walking trails and boardwalks that border a lake

What a great find so close to the action on the beach! My wife and I took the kids for a morning nature walk at this park during our stay in Clearwater Beach, and had a very nice time. The trails are nice and well-maintained, there are lots of beautiful plants and animals to see too...so bring your camera! If... More

This hidden 50 acre preserve is located just off Rt. 19 in Clearwater. There is a very nice interpretation center with animal displays and educational materials. The park offers a variety of education programs and has presentations in conjunction with local Audubon. Very nice walking trails and boardwalks that could be negotiated by wheelchair. There is also a focus on... More
