Great place to take in a touch of nature, nice elevated wooden boardwalk with benches along the way to rest. Swim platforms in several places (if you dare, there are aligators in the water).

The trail is just about 2 miles round trips. Let me just say this is the single cleanest park I have ever been to. I normally leave a park with a few stray bottles or pieces of glass. Absolutely nothing here. Kudos to this park...More
