  • Very well maintained, beautiful scenery, great location and clean public bathrooms. The playground gets too hot because there's no shade on the playground also there's lots of hungry mosquitos so wear some repellent.
  • Great place to get away from the crowd. No entrance fee. Free parking. Great place for kids and dogs on leashes.
  • Beautiful small park on Longboat key. Trails and boardwalk to see what little remains of the old Florida.Almost never crowded.
  • LOVE this place. It has a great little kid's play area and the trails are a fun place to exercise and spot wildlife.
  • This is a hidden gem. You can walk on pebble trails or boardwalks, and there are several outloooks to Sarasota Bay. Perfect place to exercise your dogs if you were staying at the beach, since dogs are not allowed on the beach.
