We saw gators! A medium size one just over the side of the boardwalk in the water and a small one at the start of the small lake. The trails and boardwalks were fantastic. Takes a few hours or more to get through.

We saw lots of wildlife. Alligator, baby ones! Raccoon, lots of birds and butterflies. We walk three miles and did not see it all. Nicely maintained. A real gem!

I came to see osprey, others and alligators. All I saw was one duck. Beautiful flora and fauna with nice wood walkways. The information booth was...tired. Old and worn out.

Walked on all wood trail which is very relaxing and calming. You hear birds calling, lizards, and if you look under the seated docks you may even see 3 foot alligators . There is a great exhibit near the restrooms telling about the park and what animals you possibly will see. They have picnic benches and grills for your use... More

This was a fun time for all of us. It was neat being able to see alligators, lizards, birds and fish while on our walk. I'm happy we decided to go.

Great park with nice walking trails and places to view the water from an elevated platform. We saw several small alligators, fish, turtles, and lots of birds. Fantastic place.

We took a little lunch and had a picnic under the covered tables..then a short stroll down a wooden bridge built on low land and water. I saw lots of beautiful birds..two alligators..lots of Florida native plants and trees ..It was an easy access for this old girl and her cane..benches to rest on and beauties to behold..Do it early...

A great weekend walk. The trails are mostly boardwalk, but the are a few dirt trails. We saw a gator and a few awesome birds. I'd say it's fun for everyone, families, couples, or even by yourself. Great for GPS phone games. Def going back!

We wanted to visit a wildlife area without the popular tourist "must-see". The park has an elevated wooden pathway about a mile long and dirt path about half mile long. The entrance building has information boards and displays of the vegetation and wildlife in the area. Restrooms are available in the building. Although we visited in July, the pathways are... More
