Turkey Creek Sanctuary is a gem in the middle of Palm Bay. Once inside, all thoughts of traffic and noise diminish and you can just imagine dinosaurs roaming through the trees. Sites of turtles, manatees, and alligators are thrilling but the walk is so peaceful that is the gift.

I live close to the sanctuary and it is very relaxing to either walk through the Sanctuary or visit by canoe or kayak--lots of manatees, fish, and birds. If you haven't made the visit it is worth the trip.

Self guided...to walk the trails and discover all kinds of wildlife, we saw a gopher turtle on our journey.

We got to talk with one of the workers of the nature center employees and learned so much about the local wild life. We saw no gators but there were so many turtles. We will be back to explore more before we go home!

This park is relatively small but worth a visit. Several excellent nature trails and great views of the creek. The area around it is built up, but it is nice that this area was preserved so one can see the native plants and some animals as well.

Had a wonderful time here. Lots of walking but, learn to pace yourself. Well worth it. Took two young girls age 15-12. They loved it. Saw all kinds of trees,birds. Nature at it's best. Nice walking trails and little stopping off points. weather was very hot and a little sticky. Want to go again when a little cooler.

This is a wonderful way to experience Florida's environment. You'll see many small animals and birds as well as water life. The trail is well marked. Wear your walking shoes and bring your binoculars. fun and educational for the whole family.

I would have liked to see a refreshment stand inside the walk. We did not see any animals this time around but we will be coming back
