“Absolute Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is my favourite park in the whole of Florida. The toilet Blocks are spotless and the play areas are safe for the kids. Boat ramps to launch your Dinghy for a spot of fishing.
The Staff work very hard to keep it tidy and safe, putting in new Boardwalks through the Woods for ease of walking. The RV sites are unbeaten in my experience, with Hard Paving to sit out on and a Fire Ring with a BBQ stand to help you cook. They have large Pagodas at the tip of the site where you can hire them daily for LARGE family picnics or meetings. They also have a LARGE camping area for Scouts camping out enmasse. Have even caught an exhausted Osprey,(Sea Eagle) on one walk through the woods. There is an exceptionally well kept area up near the Office and Boat Ramp, with Picnic Tables and chairs. A credit to Mark, Janine, and all the other Park rangers who work hard to keep it spick and span.

“Better than you'd think and right in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

This little park is packed with beauty - there is a boardwalk along the water which is long enough that you feel like you're getting a nice little hike in. Part of the walkway is elevated over the water and provides excellent wildlife viewing. The boardwalk is interspersed with a trail through the woods which is largely shaded by large live oaks and other native species.

“Beautiful Trimble Park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Trimble Park is a family favorite. Whether it is just my husband and I who head over there, or if we go with our grandchildren, it is simply a great spot. The lake is beautiful, the walking trails are really wonderful, and it's a peaceful spot. There are a few different playground areas and even a swing set overlooking the lake as well as grills and picnic tables. Although we aren't campers, we've seen the camping grounds, which look nice. We've had a photographer meet us out there for some great photo shoots - lots of good photo ops at Trimble Park. It is kept beautifully by the park rangers - - just a beautiful spot!

“Quiet time”

I like to sit and watch the world go by in the peace of the water. Good walking and biking. It is small but well worth the time spent.

“Lovely and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Hidden away, this is a beautiful park tucked between the lakes under the oak canopy. It has one of the biggest, nicest shaded playgrounds I have ever seen. Plenty of picnic tables and grills with serene lake views. Never camped there but looks nice.
