A nice place to relax you & your mind. Bring your camera and lunch bring friends & family. A place to remember & your family would also enjoy it as well.

I live nearby and never actually knew this place is being marketed for tourists on this site. How embarrassing. Go to theTitusville area or take the Deland area Blue Springs Pontoon Boat ride for birds, manatees (and other wildlife)(currently $22.00 and worth it).

Even though the park is on a busy street it is fairly quiet near the back of the park. Saw hawks and other birds. Picnic area and playground for kids.

I went there to bird watch and that day there really was not much to see. There is a covered place to eat with a table and benches and there is a playground for the kids to play and run around in a large fenced in area. There are also adequate rest room facilities in the park.

We drove an hour to see this ". Nature Preserve". It turned out to be a glorified playground with a deck that overlooked the wetlands. The wetlands had all kinds of trash. Nice playground equipment though.

For toddlers this is a great meeting place. This is also a great Birthday Party Park easy to book and you get the whole place to yourself. A 7-11 Slurpee is just steps away. A plus park.
