We love this park. I've been coming here since I was a child. Excellent for picnics, outdoor activities such as sports, play grounds, biking, "hiking", running, skateboarding, etc. it's great for occasions like reunions and birthdays. Bathrooms are fairly clean and everything is pretty well maintained. 2 downfalls is that there's NO BASKETBALL COURT (which is my biggest issue here)... More

We go to walk their paths around the park and it is beautiful. They have different exercises along the way. They have bikes to rent and canoes.

It's a good size park we go canoeing and Bass fishing at Okeeheelee all the time it's local and the water is very clean. Lots of action however the Bass tend to be 2 pounds or less. Bike riding, Dog park and the Nature Center will keep you busy all day. Lost of pavilions for cooking and hanging out.

The park is just beautiful. However, more than beautiful, it is tranquil and peaceful, with myriad activities for everybody. Walk on the miles and miles of trails. Go water skiing. Play Frisbee Golf (I believe that they call it Disc Golf now however, for me, it'll always be Frisbee Golf!). Ride your bike. Have a picnic in the woods, on... More

Beautifully paved and maintained walkways around well kept lakes. Lots of playground areas. It is a very large park with a ton to do.
