Smack in the middle of the city is this 180-acre park, which offers a respite from city life with picnicking, camping, swimming and canoeing and a chance to tour the home of the generous man who donated his lovely estate to Florida.

There's a similarity here to Central Park in Manhattan: In both places, you can walk off bustling and crowded city streets and almost immediately be immersed in 360-degree nature. This park is a gem amidst the otherwise endless stretches of high-rise condos, hotels and stores along A1A here. For a $6 admission fee, you can spend hours on nature trails... More

We walked down to the park to try some kayaking. Once you enter the park it is like getting away from the hustle and bustle and into peace and quiet. We visited on a Wednesday and the park was not busy. It is probably more crowded after school and on weekends. We rented a kayak. You go to the cafe... More

I went there when the weather was cold and rainy. Avoid it at that time. The place looks great for a walk when it is warm. Not much wildlife but pleasant nature surroundings.

You can view the Intercoastal, or hang on the beach. Walk, swim and enjoy the outdoors. Family fun or relax and find a private area.

This place is worth revisiting year after year for the majestic solitude. You can wander around trails or sit quietly at the water's edge. And soon you'll be able to enjoy refreshments (even craft beer!) at the beachfront entrance. For the modest admission price of $2 you'll see how nature in Florida used to look before greedy landowners clear-cut and... More

Right on the beach, it's a nice park like atmosphere with greenery, a lake, and lots of trees. A very nice stroll through for nature viewing. and just 2 dollars.

I decided to check out other reviews on Trip Advisor after visiting this park over the weekend, expecting others to have had the same reaction. I was surprised to find so much praise for this park. We found it totally disappointing and lacking any redeeming qualities or facilities. Here it is, middle of January and high tourist season and not... More

My husband and I visited this little gem of a park today. The cost of admittance for pedestrians was $2 per person. When you first enter the park you are greeted by the sight of an endangered tortoise (which the park is trying to save its habitat). The volunteer was very friendly and actually took us once around the park... More

Just love the entire park to either bike through, walk through or drive through. Sunsets picnics and BBQs on the intracoastal are a MUST! Great park people... just wonderful.
