Very relaxing area and a beautiful setting. You can drive along the trail to an observation area across the marshes where you may catch a glimpse of some wildlife. Even if you don't, the area is outstanding natural beauty. Fee to enter the park is $3. There is an education center (check website for opening times) and there are very... More

Savannas Preserve has excellent educational opportunities for young children - my three boys love the ranger presentations and the summer camp. We also love the kayaking. I've gone out with my kids and mom during a Saturday morning led paddle and my husband and I have done the full moon night paddle twice. Even when we did the full moon... More

Pretty cool place for doing photography lots of real Florida plants and wild life. It was too cold (for Florida standards) to observe any wildlife though. We will go back again

Not much here to see but lily pads. Having traveled all over the country I would not go out of the way to see this venue.

Good horse trails you share with hikers and bikers. Lots of swampy water and great birding and animal siting. Kayak rentals seasonal depending on water levels. Bugs are seasonal too!

We visited over Memorial Day weekend. It was very quiet, luckily for us it seemed like everyone else chose the beach! Stopped in at the visitor's center first, so many wonderful exhibits to enjoy! The volunteers were very friendly. This is mostly a scrub area with a lovely marsh area where canoes are launched. We set up at a covered... More

You have many options when the Education Center is open (which it wasn't on our visit): hiking the flat trails through different areas, kayaking, canoeing, or driving the short portion of the white trail to the boat landing. We chose to ride our bikes but other were horseback riding which looked like much more fun. we entered at the Walton... More

We spent three hours here walking the trails. We discovered a cranes nest with babies. Saw numerous Sandhill cranes, ibis, even an otter! A nature lovers' and shutterbugs' delight! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We plan to return soon.

I love the Preserve. It's a little piece of heaven. Gorgeous views, wildlife in their natural habitat and amazing trails to walk. Unfortunately the day we went the trail was flooded from rain, so we were limited. The park staff is friendly and knowledgable and ready to answer any question you have. Perfect for picniking, biking and relaxing. Def. a... More
