“Fabulous Undiscovered Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This Nature Center is a fabulous undiscovered treasure that has gone under the radar. The director, Clive Pinnock, led us on a 2 hour tour, educating us about the area, the animals and the birds and also introduced us to the birds he has rescued and tended for over 14 years. They are all friendly to him and he is able to handle each to explore their particular characteristics in a most amazing manner. From the screech owl, to the larger hooting owl and the raptors we were mesmerized by their magnificence and Clive's knowledge and enthusiasm. Clive and the Center deserve support and appreciation. Anyone looking for a great volunteer opportunity or a great nature center experience should hurry there.

“Nice park”

I love that it's five minutes away, great park for biking, nice nature center and trails and get to kayak on the weekend, wish it was open everyday for kayaking but still a very nice park.

“Excellent Large Urban Park Complex”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Okeeheelee Park offers something for everyone. From it's beautiful lake and walking trails to the BMX complex, to the Nature Reserve, to the Dog Park and the competition water skiing complex it is well laid out and beautifully maintained. Dogs must be leashed and are not permitted in the Nature Preserve. There are boats and bicycles for rent, Segway tours, non-motorized and motorized boat launches, athletic fields, picnic areas and pavilions.There is abundant bird life on the lake. I don't how the fishing is but I did see one person fishing. Adjacent to the Park are both a golf course and an equestrian center.

“Open and Spacious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

HUGE park with playgrounds for kids, lakes for fishing, water skiing, kayak and canoe rentals, bike paths, nature center and big dog park.

Picnic areas are kept clean and have BBQ grills. A really nice place to hang out with family and friends. Good security with patrols.

“Great place to spend the day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Okeeheelee park has been a place I have frequented since I was a kid and it is such a blast. They have great running trails and the water sports events they have now and then are really fun to go to.
