Stopped here briefly during a cruise ship's tour. The flora and fauna were very beautiful. I especially liked the fake snake that was up on a tree limb. Oh, and the rest rooms are quite adequate.

Lots of walkways and some fountains and a waterfall. It was very warm when we went but there were plenty of shaded areas. Highlight for us was a magnificent poinciana tree. Lovely little cafe and plenty of picnic spots. Well worth a visit.
