  • This is a very well kept little park. They call it a sanctuary but it's more like a US Marshal's witness protection thingy cause I looked for an hour and I never saw a Manatee. I know if I lived close...  more »

  • Great park to take a lovely walk next to the river. The exercise stations were educational and interactive. I like the bike rentals out in the parking lot. The free library is wonderful. We had a great time watching the wildlife and the sunset. Also decent place to catch pokemon.
  • Nice little half mile exercise trail with many stations. Bat boxes with facts to read and a "little free library" box. Bring one to leave or exchange. Kids playground. Bathrooms and picnic shelter. With loaner bike rack and little boardwalk.
  • Nice park with a walking/jogging path and a small play area for kids. Despite the name, there is not a good location to see Manatees at this park. Despite that, it is a nice place to visit if you want to go for a walk or let the kids play.
  • Beautiful wild life.Beautiful sumsets.nice WALKING park with workout stations..no MANATEES the last few years. But you do see dolphins...nice wildlife.. They just put a new playground in for kids
  • Beautiful park with plenty of areas of sun and shade. We saw lots of dolphins and big sea birds. We heard some manatees but didn't see them, most likely because we were there at noon, not the best time to observe them.
