Nice walkway through the wetlands of Turkey Creek. Forget it if you want to watch natur and animals. People use it as a jogging path and kids like to float with their plastik toys in the water.

This is a great place to go to get a good overview of the north Florida area. Its great for walkers, level wooden surface with distance marked off. Children and teens love to go there to swim r tube in the creek as have many gerations before them. We always take our out of time visitors there and many ask to go back again.

Turkey Creek is the place to go if you want a nice relaxing walk while you enjoy nature. There is a nice wide wooden walkway that goes along the Turkey Creek. Enjoy seeing turtles sunning themselves on logs, beautiful birds, squirrels jumping trees, etc. You can take a break and sit on the benches along the way. There are swimming spots and frequently you will see canoes and kayaks going down the stream. A great place to visit!

A lot of teenagers hang out at this place and get cooled off floating down the river. Whether you have tubes, floaties or jus swimming.
There is a chance to see a snake or two, but, in the many times we have been there, we have seen none.
The water is a cool 60ish to 70ish temperature. I've seen Canoes there also. It is a full 3 mile walk and so great for those who don't want to get in the cool water but want to walk for exercise. You can bring wheelchairs, although, a bit bumpy for those sitting in those chairs but they may enjoy the laughter of the kids, and the scenery of Turkey Creek.
I do not believe they have lockers for your belongings, and this I wish they did. Like the waterparks have, even those where you can use money and carry a key would work, this is something they need to work on. Many a times, my phone has been dropped by accident in the creek... but that's the only negative thing I can think of that they really need to work on.
