I loved taking the walking trails through the jungle. Their brochure says the 'real Florida' and you really feel like you saw another world, going deep into the jungle on the walking trails. We rode our bikes on the trail, but had to walk a lot of the way since the trail was narrow and twisty.

Wow! Where to start! What a surprise! I was looking for a bit of refuge, maybe a bit of home while in FL for the winter and I found it here! The park is SO much bigger than you think it is from outside the gates. It runs along the intercostal so you can picnic and watch boats. There are shady areas as well as open. Plenty of picnic tables, some pavilions for rent, I rode my bike through and just loved seeing new types of plants. I totally recommend spending some time in the park! It's like being far away while still being smack in the middle of Lauderdale!

I visited this park primarily for the purposes of 'geocaching' (if you're not sure what this is, Google will help). Managed to find some 6 caches in the park.
However, it turned out to be much more than a caching expedition. During the course of my visit I walked the full loop road and loved the peacefulness, the abundance of natural vegetation interspersed with well maintained BBQ areas. The day was perfect, not too hot, and the walk was an absolute joy.

I had been staying at a beachside hotel for three nights and, surprisingly, this park was not strongly promoted, unlike nearby Bonnet house.

I consider the park a gem.

Terrific little spot to walk in when seeking to avoid sidewalks and the busy beach scene. Liked the location and easy walking. Nothing to dislike.

The park is quiet and lovely with a great track for running. Well maintained and inexpensive to get into. Only a couple of dollars. Good public toilets
