This is a fabulous place to visit every time we travel to Sarasota! We all love to tour the lake on the airboat and see alligators.

Great hiking area. Though high the canopy walk is excellent. You get a view from above the trees. A must do while in the Sarasota area.

..(I know this maybe obvious, but the below review is just solely for the Canopy Walk and not the Park Itself)... This is always on the top of my list for a nature lovers of all ages looking for something to do. I love the park alone, but the canopy walk is a must if taking the trip to the... More

This is a neat walkway but even cooler is the tall tower you can climb to see for miles around. The Myakka River State Park in general is something everyone must see.

A fun and well made suspension bridge high above the ground and though the trees. Very nice to see how it is constructed. All natural wood and steel and interesting. Worth the walk though the trails to see such beauty and nature.

It is worth going to this state park solely to do the canopy walk! It is not that long and easy to do. There are a few steps to climb to get to the initial 25 feet high and then you walk straight for a bit experiencing a slight sway or bounce depending on how many people are on it.... More

We enjoyed the canopy walkway, but I would not go to the park JUST for the canopy. Although it was an interesting experience, I didn't quite feel like I was actually in the canopy. We climbed the tower above the trees, which was a unique vantage point and offered a great view. Since it didn't take very long, it made... More

Best part of the visit to Myakka State Park was this walkway! Old and young enjoy clicming the tower, but remember, only 4 on the bridge at a time! It's fun to walk across and be in the canopy of trees! Would love it to be longer or with an additional bridge! Start park fee is $6 per car load

This walk is an inspired idea and it is well worth the climb to the top - 76 ft. The top platform was so peaceful, you couldn't see a building, although the power cables hosted a bald eagle's nest, which made their presence in the view a plus. There was a feeling of great silence which I didn't want to... More

If you want a different perspective of Myakka State Park, take the climb to the top of the tower. The view is amazing. It isn't the best attraction in the park, but it certainly one to see.
