“Great Place to enjoy nature for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Tired of the endless strip malls? Then this is just the place for you... You'll spot for sure fish, turtles, birds of all sizes and most likely at least an alligator. It is fun to walk on the boardwalk, mostly in the shade of trees and when you teach your kids to listen to the silence, you'll hear nature talk (and traffic noise in the distance!). Vegetation is with mentioning as we'll. You'll have to see for yourselves, go there

“Good for a bit of time out in nature...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We had abit of time to pass so walked through this area. I enjoyed the lifted walkways and the decks around watering holes / ponds. We saw some animals - cranes, birds, squirrels, fish and even some wild boars. The boars seemed totally disinterested / unphased with us being there - probably just desensitized with some many travellers. The boardwalks pass through a number of smaller eco-systems and give you a good perspective of what is in the bush there. Bugs were not bad when we went through (April) but expect will be later on in the season. Overall it was good for a visit and something different.

“The best Lee County eco tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Walk entirely on a raised boardwak over wetlands with mangroves, magnificant cypress and other tropical plants. Very shady so it is pleasant even on hot summer days. Pond overlooks with very interesting wildlife.

“Not just a park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This park is not just your average park. The walk on the decks is teriffic. So much to see and so well maintained. Inside is just wonderful. So much great information on the park and the surrounding area. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

“Good fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

It was a nice nature walk. I really enjoyed it. Did see a small gator which was the reason I went to Florida. Can't wait to go back
