“Best Outdoor Place to Go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is a great place to see the outdoors of Florida in a very natural setting. There are tons of paths and trails to get lost in and a highly recommend the tower trail for great views and the first parking area to the left leads to a really neat Indian mound to walk up with lush vegetation and trees surrounding. Gorgeous!

“A nice preserve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Nice preserve, still under construction. The walk and bicycle trails a relaxing. The kayak trail is great. I wish it would be open for night kayaking.

“Great little riverfront park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Very peaceful, not too crowded, bring your bikes or kayaks or just hike thru along the boardwalk. Free to get in, lots of fishing, bring a picnic lunch....

“Emerson Point Preserve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Very pretty place, lots of outdoor things to do. There's a lookout tower, you can see the Skyway Bridge. There's a place to launch a canoe or kayak (we have a kayak). Also a great bike path. Great birdwatching also.
