Well set out however we didn't see anything - maybe we were too heavy footed! However a very pleasant place for a stroll

“Learn about local flora and fauna”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Easy walk in the shade. Wooden boardwalk through a small mangrove stand with very interesting signage. The Welcome center was a little tired looking but it did have bathroom facilities. The boardwalk was very well maintained. We took our time and saw lots of little fish and other wildlife. Don't know if the Veteran's Memorial is considered part of this area, but it was a very nice bonus at the end of the walk. Very touching.

As mentioned in a previous review, it is a little tricky to get to Four Mile Cove along a frontage road.

“smart phone maps wrong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Look at a full map of the area before driving. Took us 4 tries to get there. It is located right next to the Veterans memorial Hwy, you can see the monument just before you pay the toll on the bridge, but need to continue on and turn back to reach it. Don't be fooled by what Siri tells you. Took us about 45 minutes to walk the nice boardwalk, stopping at each of the explanatory signs.

“Back to nature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

A great place to walk on a board walk through the forest. Has signs to tell you of different species of trees. Takes about 45 min. depending how long you view the water ( River) at two different places
