We fell in love with this place... Once you drive down the road it's like you're no longer in a big city. You seem to be on an escape into some far away place lush with greenery and bodies of water. We go kayaking to the small islands off of the coast and have even stayed overnight in the cabins.... More

Fun place to hangout and skate. The entrance road has a nice flat box and a few ledges and a hill. Fun Oh yeah. Also they have rowboats and here's a picture of go carting. :) Amazing review.

What I loved about this place is that we did not have to plan and we just showed up and got a kayak to rent. Unlike other places where we have to - have to Be on time and make reservations.

That huge kayak concession has got to go! It is ruining the experience of this great urban park on the bay. I am talking about the huge two story behemoth full of kayak rentals called BG Oleta River Outdoors. It is totally out of place here. I took my own canoe there hoping to have a nice relaxing day on... More

Nice day for a Kayak ride. There is a nice beach which the kids had fun playing in. Nice and quiet with hardly any people. Even stopped by a little island. On the way back, we went through a narrow waterway. Dirty water and dead fish - suggest staying on the large waterway and circle back.
