I love going to Circle B with my camera and just walking the trails, hoping for a great pic. Sunrise and sunset always offer beautiful photo ops. Occasionally, a trail will be 'closed' because a gator has decided to sun himself in the middle of it. Another great photo op! If you are lucky, you might even get a glimpse... More

We absolutely love it here. It's everything you want in a nature reserve. Most importantly, the trails are respectful of the wildlife and warn visitors to keep their voices down so as not to disturb it (unfortunately, not everyone does so). This is one of the best places by far to get familiar with Central Florida's incredible biodiversity. You're almost... More

My husband and I love this place. We are from PA and enjoyed the outdoors and wooded areas there. We hated the snow so we moved. Circle B had a great walking path and we saw various crocs, birds, snakes, fish and other wildlife. We will certainly be going back over and over again.

Living in Polk County Circle B is only minutes away. My wife and I like to go there and walk the nature trails. If you are looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city but don't want to go far Circle B is a place to go. Plenty of wildlife to see, easy to navigate trails... More

Saw very few people while we were there. Park entry was free and we saw 10 gators. Can't ask for much more!

I've never thought of reviewing a park, but it popped up when reviewing a local restaurant, so why not. We've been here many times, and it's a wonderful park. It never ceases to amaze us it's free. Numerous trails of varying difficulty, picnic areas, views of Lake Hunter, and great indoor facilities. I guess if I had to come up... More

Visit here often in the cooler months. The three different trails and offer a great experience. If you love nature and peace and quiet. The visitors center is nice especially the play area for children.

We just love this place, its a great place to walk, ride bikes, or jog. You see a lot of wild life birds to many kinds to name, snakes, alligators, bobcats, raccoons ... We like to photography and this is a perfect place to take photos. But it is the home of wildlife so do not take your pets.
