Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2014

This is a great area to view the Manatee. There is a wooden walkway for viewing or fishing. The park is a nice place for kiddos to blow off some steam.

This park is usually crowded; the parking area has potholes where water stands when raining. It is nice for family outings as there are two covered pavilions.

It's not usually very busy here. Can't figure out why. Guess not to many people know about it. It has showers, changing rooms, bathrooms and pavillion.

If you want to see Sea Manatees without being in the water this is the place to do it. On the West side of the park is a playground for children and a boardwalk on the water. There is a small cove that can be seen from the boardwalk or the small kayak ramp that the Sea Manatees hang out in. Several kayakers were in the cove just watching the Sea Manatees which did not bother the Manatees at all. The playground was fun for the children and had the soft rubber flooring.

The west portion of this park is great for kids. It has a playground for kids. There is also a boardwalk on the water where you can usually see manatee and dolphins. The Ocean park on the east side of the park is on a no drive on beach so is less crowded then the beaches father North
