I grew up a couple miles from this park, and have walked this parks trails up and down many times. This is a great chance to see a beautiful and really historic part of Hillsborough county. There are several great trails, and a very old wooden boardwalk great for a bike ride. I have canoed the Alafia River several times... More

This is a beautiful park, with miles of paved walking paths as well as unpaved detours/routes you can take to get a little further out into the woods. The trails are extremely well marked, clean restrooms, elevated wooden paths over streams, and extremely well maintained. Get out and get some exercise while enjoying the great outdoors in Southwest Florida.

I have been to this park approximately 100 times so I really know it. It is a small rural park along the Alafia River. The main park area is wooded with picnic areas, pavilions, and a small playground. They have a park office with a quaint display area. They do have public bathrooms! The best part is the nature trails... More

There was a long trail that meandered through the park. The park has a little staging area that gives nature talks but the best thing there is the trails.

I have been going to Aldermans Ford Park since my boys were in strollers and had some of their Birthday parties there as well. They are now 28 and 25. Aldermans Ford Park is a good place to picnic, ride your bike and walk down the many beautiful paths/trails. I have also utilized the canoe launch several times and recently... More

What a gem in the wilderness. Although just a small park it has been so nice to be able to get out of town and enjoy the trees and nature trails that this park has to offer. Picnic facillities are very nice with numerous Pavillions for large groups and individual tables located in the park. The park has a very... More

The boardwalks are always a lot of fun in cooler weather-- you can see quite a bit on the trek through the park.
