Big Tree Park Reviews
So sad that this unique park no longer has "The Senator"-Florida's oldest and largest cypress tree. I nice place to bring the family for an afternoon walk or picnic. more »

I love this park! It is a trajedy that the main tree burned down but the remaining tree is still very impressive. I take the kids (toddlers) at least once a week. Great for young ones!
There is plenty of parking there is a nice playground for children you just need to keep your eye on them it has bathrooms as well no water fountains available
Beautiful park but the end of the trail really made me hate humanity...
