Great tour guides that tell the background of wetlands and uplands of Florida to include the flora and fauna. Lots of birds and other wildlife. Recommend you go early AM or Evening

Weather permitting, this is our very favorite place for a daily walk. It is so quiet and peaceful, to be this close to nature is a wonderful way to start the day!

This park has a nice boardwalk through different ecosystems. Take a park map and learn about each section as you walk. There are many types of animal life. The water is clear, so it's easy to see fish, turtles, and other animals under the water. I was content just staring at the many different species of fish in the lakes.

I liked it better without the guide. We used to go years ago before it was "Florida." We could walk along and see all sorts of wildlife. Now the guides talk so much, the wildlife stay away.

This natural area in the middle of a growing residential and shopping center community, is a sight to behold. There is a very nice boardwalk over a beautiful cypress slough to view what has been preserved through a land gift. The cypress trees are magnificent. The water is as pristine as it gets.

We have been here several times and find it to reflect what much of Florida looked when we first moved here. The flora and fauna is ever changing depending on the time of day or year. You never know what you might see. It is worth the hours walk.
