“Lovely place for a walk.”

My family went here for a few hours while in Orlando, and it was lovely. Nice little nature center and shop and then several trails ranging up to a few miles through the preserve. A little muddy in places but otherwise easy to walk on. There's one spot where there's a large swamp area and signs about the wildlife you may see - sadly that was limited to a squirrel for us, but still a great walk! I would definitely return if I am in the area in the hopes of seeing more, or just spending time there again.

Tibet Butler Preserve is the Old Florida, a well maintained boardwalk through the type of natural beauty that has made Florida famous. It's free and so refreshing to the soul, a great place for locals and out of state visitors as well to see what Florida is really like instead of the plastic world of the theme parks

We went to the Tibet-Butler Preserve, so that we could do something relaxing and low-key on Thanksgiving day. This is probably the only thing I have done in Orlando so far that is free. If you love nature and enjoy walking, there is every reason that you should enjoy coming here. We were lucky enough to see a little grey squirrel and a rabbit hopping across the trail. We also saw Osprey, Woodpeckers and a Blue Heron. While there are not animals at every turn, there is definitely evidence that they are living in this beautiful preserve. It is clean and beautiful and clearly it is here for the safety and enjoyment of the animals first, which made us really appreciate this place. It is not a zoo, it is a sanctuary, which we were happy to be able to enjoy walking through. My only wish is that I had worn rubber boots, so that we could have gone through the whole preserve, having said that we were able to navigate most of it without them.

I enjoyed going here mostly because it was a free attraction off the beaten path of the theme parks. If you go near the rainy season, definitely bring your rubber boots as many of the trails have standing water or are flooded.

There is an interpretive guide for many of the viewpoints and many opportunities to see what Florida looked liked before civilization.

This place is terrfic, if you are trying to see the real Florida come here. Nice trails to walk on (except during the rainy season June-Oct) they can get wet but you will love them. A nice nature center with exhibits on the area and its Free! Open Wed-Sun. Call for hours.
