I very much enjoyed my visit. Visited on a weekday and it was very quiet early in the morning. Crowds arrived later. The manatees are the major attraction, but I enjoyed the birds and even the alligators. There is a boat ride if you are so inclined. Appeals to all age groups.

This was a relaxing and educational park to help visitors learn about the Native Wildlife. You will see native animals like birds, alligators, and Panthers.

This place is a little gem for not much money. It's the best place to see what Manatees look like. They're a rescue place for some who are injured. The rest of the place has local to Florida animals and birds (apart from the hippo.) They're presentations are educational.

We arrived at opening and walked to the site from visitor's center and then took the boat back. The admission cost was worth it just to see the manatees swimming in the spring. The zoo area was also fun especially for kids. Lots of Florida species there and one funny Hippo. Lovely area in the early morning.
