dont know where all the birds are in Florida lately. Have seen more birders than birds the last ten days we've been here. Flushed a couple rock doves (IE flying rats) in a park near the port, and I can hear a mockingbird from my hotel room, but the signature florida birds have been few. Hope I see a few... More

This is basically a parking lot with a restroom and access to the beach. There is a small playground for kids, but not much else. It is a good place to park and go o the beach though.

This tiny park has a delightful board walk, leading from one parking lot to another, where there is access to the very nice Atlantic beaches, but the woods itself was very quiet when we visited it this week. We went there to see birds, because it was supposed to be a good birding location. Not! We did not see (or... More

On our family vacation We needed beach access that would please an age range from 1-82. This park has free parking, a playground, clean bathrooms, easy beach access, life guards, and a station to rinse off at when you are ready to go home. Everyone is happy!

This is a small neighborhood park with beach access and a dog park. However, of interest to birders would be the short nature trail through a wooded area. Although it yielded few birds this trip, I can anticipate this would be a prime drop-out location during migration season

The beach was nice and clean and had two bath and changing houses. They also rent lounge chairs and umbrellas at the beach, and also... More

We stopped in this park today because we saw a sign regarding "I Dream of Jeanne" and was curious. I never found any information about Lori Wilson is I not sure why the park is named after her. Nevertheless, the park is very nice. Has a fairly decent sized dog park. Wonderful walk to the beach.

There are two parts to this park. The first is the family park area and beach access. They have slides and climbing for younger kids. A great place for them to burn off excess energy from traveling for long distances. This area was very clean and well maintained. The second area was a dog part. They had several fenced in... More
