I saw the sign on HWY 50 for Orlando Wetland Park and decided to see what it was all about. I found myself hiking approx 4 miles. Aside from the oppressive heat, I really enjoyed it. Wildlife was present everywhere I looked! Waterfowl are abundant. I am not a birder by no means, but it was really quite fascinating to... More

There is always several original dwellings that have been brought here... More

Great park with athletic fields, playground, rental pavilions, picnic tables with grills and a wonderful trip back in time with historic Pioneer homes and a fort.

This was a nice surprise. It was very hot but we still enjoyed looking at the historic buildings and replica fort.

This is great place for some outdoor fun with a bit of Florida History. Plan an afternoon and bring a picnic basket. Nice Fort to explore along with about 7 or 8 old Florida cracker houses. All the homes are fully done in period items so you feel as though you have walked in the the past. Greta pavilions if... More

An amazing free experience. This park is filled with both original buildings and a replica 18th century fort. Displays in both the original and replica structures are informative and interesting. For those interested in colonial and near post colonial history, this is a worthwhile stop which could easily fill half a day. The only oddity was that, even on a... More

It's a collection for old farm houses, a fort, some wildlife and a bit of a nature walk. I would say it takes 1 hour to work through the five or so houses. It is a fairly interesting place to visit. Positives: Its free, you can have lunch under some of the trees, there is park for kids to play... More

We came upon this rural Florida setting very much by accident. A park setting with lovely views, gift shop (check for limited hours), and the historic buildings that are part of Florida's history. Bring the whole family for a day of picnicking, throwing or kicking a ball, or just stroll among the buildings. It's a lovely setting to explore buildings... More

My 11 year old son was excited to be there because of it's good interaction with nature and the great historical artifacts that were there.I think everyone should go there because it helps teens and young childern connect with nature and "unplug" from electronics.
