Attraction details

Nice park for 3 dollars per person and many animals to see in the wild. Really helpful workers . A old vulture from the 80's that is pretty tame. Nice wide walking trails and boardwalks that border a lake

What a great find so close to the action on the beach! My wife and I took the kids for a morning nature walk at this park during our stay in Clearwater Beach, and had a very nice time. The trails are nice and well-maintained, there are lots of beautiful plants and animals to see too...so bring your camera! If you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of an alligator or two breaking the surface on the lake too! At only $3 per person (no charge for our 4-year-old), it's an inexpensive little break from the beach.

This hidden 50 acre preserve is located just off Rt. 19 in Clearwater. There is a very nice interpretation center with animal displays and educational materials. The park offers a variety of education programs and has presentations in conjunction with local Audubon. Very nice walking trails and boardwalks that could be negotiated by wheelchair. There is also a focus on energy and a really interesting water tower exhibit. The butterfly garden is small but delightful. A nearby peacock farm allows their birds to run free and you may see some of them around the park. We saw a male in full display and another male in the parking lot trying to pick a fight with a 'challenger' which was really his own reflection in a car. Local volunteers staff the interpretation center. A lovely high school student, Lizzie, was friendly and informative. You certainly can't beat the small price of $3 to spend a few hours here!

We were pleasantly surprised to find this quaint little spot. Our 2 kids loved the tanks full of Florida wildlife. There were snakes, spiders, tortoises etc.
the resident birds that are being rehabilitated were so fun to watch. They are clearly not scared of humans and come right over to check out the guests.
Worth a stop

Looking through trip adviser whilst in Clearwater we came across this place. Not sure if it was because it was February but we were the only people there. Not that it mattered. Was a lovely place to wander round for a few hours looking for wildlife. Came across a large friendly turtle in the large lake who came over to see us & was quite happy to stay around for a while. We also saw a woodpecker & terrapins. Wasn't a massive place but we really enjoyed it. A vast difference to the bustling theme parks. It only cost a few dollars to get in so well worth a visit.
