“Nature Restoring Itself”
Review of Freedom Park

Attraction details
Reviewed February 19, 2014

With the help of Collier County Parks and Recreation, nature is given a chance to restore itself here.
Right beside a busy highway, this 50-acre park features a 5-acre lake and a water system that allows runoff to be cleansed by nature's own processes, protecting the Gulf of Mexico from more pollutants. There are 3500' of boardwalk and trails through these restored wetlands. On our first visit, we saw a red-shouldered hawk fly to a nearby tree and perch. A very large alligator sunned on the lake's bank. Many species of waterfowl were in evidence. Lubber grasshoppers marched like ants across the path. Days later, we watched racoons eating berries in a palmetto and others eating crustaceans. The large recreation center was fun and the ranger very informative. Highly recommend a visit, or many visits. Free.
