Great for walking in a natural area surrounded by the city. Lots of alligators and turtles can be seen from the boardwalk. The park is a good respite on a visit to Moffitt Cancer Center.

The extensive boardwalks at this park make it a great way to explore Lettuce Lake and the Hillsborough River. You can see gators and loads of birds, particularly early / late in the day. Canoeing is also available here.

This park has lovely views from a wooden walkway. Great for an afternoon in nature. No pets are allowed on the walkway, so that is the only limitation.
