This sanctuary consists of a series of boardwalk trails around and over Turkey Creek, which feeds into the Indian River. Visitors can also rent kayaks to navigate the waterways. On of the trails also has an exercise course built in. While there's nothing thrilling or exciting here, it's a wonderful place for a peaceful walk or kayak. I've seen manatees... More

great way to get close to nature without hiking. All boardwalks and beautifully kept, and it's very peaceful. You can even go Kayaking if you feel like it.

Beautiful, peaceful place to take a walk and see natural beauty. The information center is very, well, informative. And the folks who work there are helpful and seem to truly want you to have a great experience. If you're thinking about experiencing it, I'd say "go for it". Enjoy!

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.
