Nice little wildlife park that you can comfortably walk through in a couple of hours. Nice selection of critters and they offer a few feeding demonstrations and talks. If you are in the area, it's definitely worth spending some time!

Most, if not all, visitors who come to Homosassa and its surrounding environs makes this a must visit. Many come just to see this park as a peek to the past that had been Florida. This is a must. To be honest even, they who reside in the area visit every so often,it is that interesting

As often as I go, I am always amazed by the calming effect walking through the park has on me. This is a great place to bring your entire family - from moms and dads to grandparents with the children. Plus I love to watch the manatees.

Best 25 bucks we spent ever. Had a very cool little boat ride to the park. Loved the captain and all of his knowledge of the area saw 3 manatees as soon as we got there. Live the fact that the place has slot of volunteers who care and that it is a place for rehabilitating animals. The fish bowl... More

Lots of wonderful animals to see. Very pretty park even though there was a thunderstorm midway through our walk. However, there are numerous shelters with benches so one can get out of the rain. Took the free boat ride over to the park and the tram back due to the rain. This is a great park especially for children. Definitely... More

Let me start by saying that it's been a dream of mine to see a manatee in the flesh. I was privileged to be able to see their 3 resident ladies last week. They're so much larger than I thought they'd be. They weigh approximately 3,000 lbs.! It was very hot but the wildlife trail/ walkway offered plenty of shade.... More

We live in Inverness, but family came in from Texas, and two had never been to FL. Instead of Disney, they wanted to 'see more about FL', so the first place here was Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. It was STINKING HOT that day..BUT..the pleasant boat ride over to the park from the parking lot, and AC buildings along... More
