“great park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a good family park where you can go bike riding swimming in a small ocean area and enjoy the outdoors. You can also enjoy the boats and people watch. The place is cool and surrounded by a natural habitat.

This gem that includes areas that are protects "Hammock reserves", nature trails, yacht/boating club, and little lagoon. There are bike trails, walking trails, and serene picnic areas in which to relax, exercise or simply enjoy the wonder of nature. Highly recommend this for the local and visitors alike!

“Matheson Hammock -- Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Biking into Matheson Hammock through the mangroves is one of the thrills I had upon first discovering that path. I like the walk around the lagoon, watching the boats, and I managed to snag a rental paddle board, which adds to the fun.
