A great place to go for a quiet walk along the shore or just to sit in the sand and watch a sunset. We love watching the boats go by and the birds that rest on the shore.

Peaceful, quiet and beautiful. Good walking trails, kayaking, bird watching and fishing or just sitting and relaxing. There is a small picnic area too.

A great park to fish, hike, kayak and learn about Manatee River history! Kayak through the mangrove tunnels, fish and take a quick dip on the sandy beach. Lots of history here too. Check out the original homesite along the river!

Sunsets are awesome and nice to set and watch the wildlife. I go out there at least once a week to watch sunsets. I have taken many relatives out to see the birds and mangroves etc.

What an absolutely beautiful place to go to enjoy the water, scenery, picnic lunches and the peacefulness. Children enjoyed hours of playing in water and walking paths that lead to beautiful sights.
