  • We like to drive over to the Preserve for a nice walk through the trees. There is a boardwalk throughout the preserve and you must stay on it. The trees took a bashing courtesy of Hurricane Irma, but ...  more »
  • My husband and I had a lovely walk along the trails and finished in just over an hour. We didn’t see much wildlife except birds but saw lots of mangroves, ferns, palms and other flora. There are beaut...  more »

  • I've gone here since I was a kid, as a adult I love taking walks here and reflecting. There's a kayak shop down the road from the park and a launch spot near by to that. The pavilion is cool to sit under and the bathrooms are clean normally. The board walk takes a decent trail and I'd love to see it go even deeper some day. There is a picnic area off the beaten path near the bridge and I only wish there was an interactive area for little kids near the front for the younger children. Then again it's a nature preserve not a park so I'm not gonna complain about anything like that or even hold it against it. The parks good for walks and kayaking.
  • Neat little nature preserve. I'm a sucker for a boardwalk trail, and this one takes you right through the mangroves. Great signage and a moving veterans memorial. I'd like to come back and rent a kayak sometime (weekends only).
  • Very pretty place. Would love to come back in kayak season. Nice to see some natural Florida still remains. Excellent raised trails, informative signage.
  • We do our morning walks here. The salute to the military monument is awesome. Very impressive. Many mangrove trees during the hike on a plane board walk, many bench stops along the walk. 1.5 mile walk if you do the whole trek.
  • We love place. We stop by every time we come to town. Clean paths. Almost all raise hours walk. Two nice little fishing piers. The memorials in the front are nice to see. I've been visiting for 15+ years. Now our son gets to run the same trails.
