  • This is a small park but mighty in terms of its wildlife, especially birds. We we surprised by how many of them we saw on a chilly December morning. Nice walk to the observation deck, not crowded, ver...  more »
  • Outstanding park, a hidden gem. Great hiking trails along the Cotee River and a great Kayak Launch as well. Well kept, quiet, and peaceful setting. 
  • There are several very nice aspects to this park. One, few people know about it. Two, you can take a group out, and grab a pavilion. It's a nice spot for 1,2,or 15. It's also waterfront with a beautif...  more »
  • This Preserve is operated by the city of New Port Richey, which means there are limited funds to take care of and make improvements on the park. That being said, NPR has done a good job with it and it is quite peaceful. My main concern is security within the park itself. Never seems to be a lot of activity there. Maybe a little PR wouldn't hurt or the scheduling of certain events here instead of always having them at Sims Park in the middle of town.
  • Not huge but a very nice walk the water is very peaceful and nice to see take about an hour to walk around and see it all I'm going back
  • Great park ... Nice boardwalk that goes to the Cottee river. Good kayak launch, i saw my first manattee while kayaking here and lots of turtles.
  • A little old school Florida, off the beaten path. Off the paved path also. Yes your car will get dirty, and so will you, or you're not having fun. Definitely not a finely manicured Disneyish artificial feel. Just a fun place. Water level is a little low at the moment, but it is the dry season, and I think the tides affect this area as it leads out to the Gulf near Catches restaurant on 19.
  • Peaceful, off the beaten path and well maintained. Little bit of everything!
