“Not as we expected.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

It is a nice place to walk around but not really much to see or do, but if you are looking for a place that does not charge for admission it is worth walking around and looking at the trees and the plants. The ladies in the main house are very friendly and helpful. If you have small kids there is a nice play ground for them. Walk done for Robinsons Preserve from there, and really see some sights.

“Great Potential for the Future”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

This is a lovely place, but work in progress. When bridge is completed with a walk around the pond, it will be nicer. It is a very peaceful spot, and with the Robinson Preserve nearby as well as the Desoto National Memorial not far away, it would be a great area to take a picnic and spend the day.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We went during a really hot day but the flowers were amazing, the kids had fun on the play area and we spent hours looking at birds and feeding the turtles. Even saw a black racer snake! A great way to see Florida beauty for an afternoon
