Took the grandkids for a stroll on the boardwalk. Good exercise with enough shade that you can do this during the day. Has enough things to see that you can keep them occupied. Nice outing that won't cost a dime!

This is a great place to bring the family and spark conversation and exercise! You can spend as few as 15 minutes or as much as 2 hours here exploring all the trails. The nature center is a great introduction to local wildlife for visitors. What looks like a palm scrub, actually has WAY more going on than you think... More

Loved this sanctuary. You do really feel that you are in the middle of nowhere. You can see many raccoons, birds, butterflies and turtles. I did 2 trails but not the kayak. I hope to do the kayak if I get to visit again.

Having lived in this area for years, and knowing of TK, we finally decided to go for a nice Sunday afternoon stroll. Easy to get to, plenty of parking. Most of this trail is on raised Boardwalks which make it safe and accessible. It can be hot and sunny in places, bring a bottle of water with you. Great simple... More

Boardwalks and trails lead you through beautiful trees, along side lovely waters and overlooking deep ravines. Something for everyone. Mostly shady, so one need not be afraid of the sun and heat.

We three friends embarked on a geocaching adventure here at Turkey Creek. The trailhead starts near the Palm Bay library and passes by the nature center. The boardwalk "trails" make for easy walking and enjoying nature without bushwhacking. If you're looking for a little more adventure, you can leave the boardwalk on established trails through the sanctuary. Make sure to... More

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