This is such a great park. It has excellent facilities with an amazing amount of information provided. I have had a chance to speak with the park manager who was very friendly and helpful. There are great trails and even a boat ride. The center is fabulous. There is also a dock and plenty of boardwalks meandering throughout the park.... More

How refreshing to find a large swath of wild so close to the landscaping and manicuring of the beach area. The mud flats path, on a early Monday morning, offered quiet and much wildlife activity. The view from the tower was delightful as was the bird and butterfly watching, and the tower itself provides stair or elevator access. A great... More

Best for quiet walks on the nature trails. Not usually crowded unless the pavilion is hosting a wedding, then don't bother going there

At certain times of the year, you can enjoy guided midnight kayak paddles, get involved with sea turtles up close and personal and experience the inhabitants of the mangroves with one of the hall's regular programs. Check out their calendar and stop by for a walk on the trails to view some local wildlife. I am fortunate to live close... More

This is a very nice, quiet nature center. There are interesting exhibits in the museum, and the boat ride through the mangroves is very nice. The view from the tower is pretty impressive. Lots of trails to explore. It got very warm, so we limited our time spent walking them. Think about bug spray - there were lots of no-see-ums... More

We spent some time here on our vacation in south Florida. A great park and natural area to view natural Florida beauty. The park is very clean and well kept. The Nature Center has an observation tower to look out over the entire area. From the tower you can walk along a boardwalk trail with several look out points over... More
