The sign says it’s $2 per hour to park but we only had to pay $1 per hour. We saw 1 manatee from afar but still had a good time. Nice little walking trail with chances to see other wildlife, all we saw were squirrels and a bunch of lizards. There were playgrounds for kids and picnic areas. Small gift shop.

I visited twice in November at different times a day. I saw no manatees. Not worth visiting in November. I came at the coolest part of the day, when the manatees are most likely to be around, but still no sign of them. Lots of squirrels and spiders, but not much else.

On the Orange River is a unique place to exercise and see the beauty Fort Myers has to offer. Rowing up and down helped us to keep active and see beautiful scenes on the river.

This is a fun place to go see the manatee. It’s a beautiful park. Well maintained. Something I recommend when the weather is cooler.

Manatees gather here during the colder winter months to get the warm water from the power plant discharge. During the winter, you can see literally a hundred manatees up close. At other times of the year, you may only see a few. A very good visitor's center with educational materials for kids.
