Looking for a wildlife attraction without the admission fee, then this is the place to visit. This nature preserve is tucked behind a neighborhood. If it weren't for the street sign, you would never know the park was back there. Stop in the education center for a taxidermy look at just some of the wildlife you might see during your... More

Was raining on and off but still had lots of fun. Walking on trails, looking at nature, lots of cool pictures. Saw baby alligator. Board trails kept us clean :)

Sawgrass Lake is so peaceful. I love to come here, and relax. I love walking along the boardwalk. You never know what you're going to see. Alligators, Squirrels, Turtles. All kinds of beautiful wildlife. The observation tower is super neat. Beautiful park.

This is an easy park to access (and free). We went in the morning and saw lots of great animals. We saw several exotic birds, large and small gators, a HUGE spider (as big as a man's open palm) with furry tufts on the joints of its legs, strange fish such as gar, snakes, giant land snails, and squirrels. The... More

This was a beautiful park to visit and it was free! We never saw any gators but we did see turtles, fish and other wildlife. Nice walking trails and a great place to visit. We were looking for a place to cool down on a hot day and this park the perfect place to relax.

Like a natural nursery...we saw baby alligators and baby turtles and baby snakes. I'm sure the Moms were around but we just saw the little ones. A nice park to visit! We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was not grouped (and those there we respectful). Lots of families and everyone was happy to point out what wildlife they... More

We were looking for a wheelchair accessible walking path to spend some time at before we caught our flight home. This park was was perfect! This incredible gem is tucked away in the shadow of I-275 but seemed to be an entire world away! We loved the boardwalk trails.
