“A neighborhood wetland area, not a destination worth driving to.”

“A neighborhood wetland area, not a destination worth driving to.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

I live nearby and never actually knew this place is being marketed for tourists on this site. How embarrassing. Go to theTitusville area or take the Deland area Blue Springs Pontoon Boat ride for birds, manatees (and other wildlife)(currently $22.00 and worth it). Note:This area is not the picnic ground and cement walk on Howell Branch that was recently donated/bought by the City to resolve an ongoing dispute.

“peace in the city”

Even though the park is on a busy street it is fairly quiet near the back of the park. Saw hawks and other birds. Picnic area and playground for kids.

“Nice park for kids but not much nature.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I went there to bird watch and that day there really was not much to see. There is a covered place to eat with a table and benches and there is a playground for the kids to play and run around in a large fenced in area. There are also adequate rest room facilities in the park.

“Misleading”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We drove an hour to see this ". Nature Preserve". It turned out to be a glorified playground with a deck that overlooked the wetlands. The wetlands had all kinds of trash. Nice playground equipment though.

“Small Kids Excellent Park.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

For toddlers this is a great meeting place. This is also a great Birthday Party Park easy to book and you get the whole place to yourself. A 7-11 Slurpee is just steps away. A plus park.
