We took MN visitors to Homosassa Springs St Park in March 2014. What a great place to visit...we saw the manatees (awesome creatures), Lou the hippo, alligators, birds and many other animals. The ride over on the boats is an added benefit to the experience. The park is clean and laid out well. You can see a lot and enjoy... More

This animal refuge was top notch....the volunteers that work their obviously love this place. Everyone was helpful and informative about the animals. The animals their weren't captured and caged for no reason. This is a sanctuary for those that cannot live in the wild. The kids had a blast touring at thier own pace and watching the presentations the staff... More

My son and I visited the park and enjoyed it immensely. Before you go, keep an eye out for coupon books - we found a 20% off coupon in one! The boat ride there is almost worth the price of admission alone. The wildlife talk at 10:30 was informative but we left early to walk through the park ourselves. We... More

I took my 11yr old Niece to this park today as she's visiting from Ohio. She's one to go and do something and if it isn't exciting, or there isn't a water slide or internet, she thinks its Bor-ing...Well, we took the boat ride over (her choice) after we watched the Manatee Education video inside the front building (On US19)....when...

This wildlife park is a wonderful place to visit. They have left as many trees as possible, so you feel like you are just walking through the woods in Florida. All the animals are native to Florida (except Lou the Hippo). We saw several manatees and got to see them eat their snack of lettuce. The underwater viewing area is... More

We visited the park after swimming with manatees and were sure that couldn't be beaten. It wasn't but this park came a close second. All the staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful, the selection of animals was impressive, the environment was stunning. Altogether we spent an excellent 3-4hours here and recommend it to nature lovers. Everything from manatees to... More

We went on a Tuesday afternoon, and it was great. They have trees everywhere, so that helped with the heat. Saw manatees, several birds, foxes, coyotes, and Lu the Hippo. Every animal there is native to the state of Florida, except for Lu. They made him an honorary citizen. If you like to go places that are off the beaten... More

This is an excellent experience for all ages. Our 4 year old granddaughter can hardly wait to go back. The special attractions and presentations are a must. Don't stand behind the hippo or you might get sprayed. The boat ride is fun. Strollers are available for a donation.
