“Exactly what I was looking for”
Review of Sawgrass Lake Park

I loved this place, all the reviews said I would see Alligator's and thats exactly what I saw. There were quite a few medium and small alligators spread along the different viewing areas. We also saw many fish, turtles, armadillos and a raccoon. Free to get into and definitely worth the trip!

There are always aligators to look at as well as a variety of fishes, turtles and other wild life. A beautiful boardwalk as well as a building housing what you may see

I have always loved this park. Every time we go we see at least one alligator, soft shell turtles, birds and fish. However, the local kids (they are the one's I have witnessed) have used this park to hang out and litter their convenient store snacks.It has really gotten gross and probably a health concern for the animals. Plus the gun range across the lake ruins the experience completely.

How sad that this nice park has to be so close to a gun shooting range. The noise was very distracting and must have kept the birds away. Though we did see some alligators. CLOSE the Range!

This is one of my favorite parks. You definitely want to take a camera. It has mostly boardwalks through a sometimes swampy, mostly wooded area. There is a place where it opens onto a small lake and there is an observation tower there. I have seen aligators every time I have been there. Once I even saw a mothe and 15 6 inch baby alligators. There are always water and shore birds in abundance. I have seen a river otter. They recently did a lot of cleaning and work on the boardwalk and it is really nice right now.
