“Cool out-of-the-way spot”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Cool historic spot that few locals even know about. Very pretty and easy to walk too. Old Florida and ancient history all in one.

Reviewed March 2, 2014

Unfortunately our visit was cut short due to the weather, but it is a quiet place that will satisfy a walk with nature.

“Greta place for a picnic”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We visited this park while staying on Anna Maria Island. It has great hikes and great views. The point at the end of the park is a great place for a picnic.

This park is much better than Robinson Preserve or Myakka Park, in my opinion.

Also, there is a great fruit/veggies stand on 10th street on the right hand side on the way to the park.
