They have nice trails and boardwalk paths. There is a little science museum and they offer classes and other events there.
Fern Forest Nature Park has a very nice boardwalk. The Prairie Overlook Trail, is a nice trail through the woods or you could walk a long the Prairie. I have tried twice to walk on the Maple Walk Trail, but the first time we were chased out by mosquitoes and this time the trail was too wet. My daughter and... More
Some trails have pavement, some have very flat grass for stroller smooth ride. Few benches to nurse baby are in very good observation points. We haven't seen any wildlife, but enjoyed the park.
I thought Fern Forest Nature Park was a nice enough place. The boardwalk is extensive and, other than one warbler, I didn't see another bird. There were a number of people who were obviously getting their exercise program in, because they passed me a number of times at a pretty good pace. I go to a lot of parks, but... More
This was a nice little surprise and well worth the visit. There is a lengthy boardwalk across Cypress Creek that takes you through wetlands where you can find some wildlife. There were gorgeous butterflies everywhere. After the boardwalk, you reach the point where all the trails meet. Going to the left, you eventually hit the perimeter trail. At this intersection... More
This is one of the excellent county nature centers that are free to visit and offer so much: shaded trails and boardwalks, instructive signage about local flora and fauna, indoor displays and facilities.

The other trails take you through a thick forest which leads up to a nice, elevated gazebo. At the entrance is a beautiful lodge-like multi-purpose building which hosts... More
I used to live about 5 minutes away from the Fern Forest & my daughter & I would visit regularly. We loved the guided nature walks, when they had them (they used to be at least once every weekend, but they dwindled over time, so not sure if they still have them). And my daughter always had to pay a... More
It is a ok park, nice to walk and see nature, nothing too special. Florida is definitely not a wonderful place for parks, mainly with the heat and mosquitoes during summer time. The beach is always the best option.
Back to nature. Unimproved walkways thru a park right in the middle of town. Lush foliage, unusual plants + bugs and little critters. Probably not a good idea in the summer like season. Smaller than but similar to the nature preserves found in Palm Beach County. Try Green Cay preserve and Wakadahatchee and be impressed!
