One of my favorite parks!

This is a great place to relieve stress. The boardwalk makes it an easy hike. There are several scenic overlooks for enjoyment. Always a variety of wildlife to see.

My husband and I enjoy kayaking here. The creek is usually very quiet and wildlife is always around you.

I have been to Turkey Creek many times. It is a pleasant walk along a boardwalk and if you want to walk further you can continue on the Sand Pine trail back to the start. You can see turtles and gar at the canoe dock and occasionally an alligator sun bathing. I have never seen manatees from the boardwalk (although... More

We got there later in the morning so there weren't many birds but it is a beautiful place for a walk and there are always good nature sightings to be had.

As in previous visits, we enjoy visiting this sanctuary. Every time is a different experience. This time while walking the boardwalk we saw two land turtles (Tortoise?). While we didn't see any manatees or alligators this time we saw plenty of gars and turtles at the canoe deck. Plan to spend about 1.5 hours walking the boardwalk. If you want... More

The walking paths at Turkey are wonderful, not only do you see many birds but fish and other creatures as well. It is a peaceful place to go visit and meditate.

I've been visiting Turkey Creek Sanctuary for 20 years, and never tire of it. I always bring visitors here. A true remnant of Real Florida, made comfortably accessible to all, with clean and well-maintained facilities and walks, all free. Beautiful trails and boardwalks, frequent critter sightings (tortoises, birds, manatees, gators, turtles, gar, etc.), especially along the creek itself. The hammock... More

Great place to go take a walk on their boardwalk and relax. Eventually there is a stream that has many wonderful types of "things" in it. Places to sit down and relax but beware of the critters! Racoons love to snack on your snacks!!

Sometimes walking is hard for me, but these paths are easy and there is lots to see. We happened to see some 4' fish (maybe Gar) and we really enjoyed it here. Also it us very close to the Manatee viewing dock.

Great trail to spend time enjoying mother nature at her finest. Lots of birds and the occasional alligator or two. I live close by and enjoy this place on a weekly basis.
