A lot of nature trails. They have a very nice visitor center that tell you what you are going to see and details about the wild life. All in all a nice place to visit if you are into nature

I live near here and hike these trails quite often. If you're alone and quite, you can see any number of animals. Last week, I came face to face with a baby panther. Taking a respectful group or school frild trip is also highly recommended. The nature center offers everything from clean bathrooms and central Florida visitor center information to... More

What a place to observe Florida wildlife. Especially alligators. There are many trails to hike and a lot of photo ops. Also, there is an interactive nature center to explain what you have or will see in this great nature area. Want an interesting place to hold a meeting? There is a well equipped conference center available.

We visited this marvelous place twice with visitors this past winter and each group had a great experience. It's not too often that you get a facility as this for FREE. no admission charges at all. Definitely will visit often, the trails are nice and make for a pleasant walk or nice bike ride.

This is a top notch nature reserve! The Discovery Center is fantastic and very kid friendly place where you can learn a lot about the beautiful biodiversity of this area. Trails are well marked and there is abundant wildlife everywhere. Oh, and its free!

I love to go out to Circle B...you really never know what you are going to see. If you have family out of State and they want to see what Florida is about. ...this must be on your list. Take a camera and wear comfortable shoes. If you have older people who have trouble walking, call them and ask about... More

Lately I have been coming here for early Sunday morning walks. It is always enjoyable, even as it gets hotter. The birding cannot be beat and there will always be an alligator sighting - some too close for comfort but always a good story. There isn't a single other park in a 30 mile radius that I enjoy spending more... More
