Start out walking right and make the first left and there they are. Alligators everywhere and you walk right through them. Lots of unusual birds to be seen as well.

But bring a hat and sunscreen. Even in the morning, there is little reprieve from the sun. Great walkabout to see some wildlife. Even found a couple of Geocaches. Watch out for fire ant hills. Enjoyable place to see some of Florida's nature.

This is a great place to walk, bike, picnic or birdwatching. We always see wildlife when we come here. Otters, deer, alligators (big and small), and many different birds. Wonderful place to enjoy a leisurely walk.
