  • Nice hike through woods and raised wood boardwalk. Boat launch for canoes and kayaks. I saw a rabbit while I was here. I heard woodpecker, but could not see the bird. Nice observation areas with benches. Make sure hike through the woods off from the boardwalk, and the upper trail. It beats walking in New Port Richey and it's close to home.
  • I'm a Florida native and never knew about how awesome this park is. I almost don't want to review it in such a positive way because it's really a hidden gem! What a relaxing day hiking we had. The kids loved exploring and the NPR Rocks were plentiful. This visit was exactly what I needed to get away from the daily hustle and bustle. We are planning a weekly visit. This time, we bring rocks too!
  • We love it here. Lots of beautiful scenery. Nice paths to walk. Great climbing play ground. Spots to fish. Local wildlife. Dog allowed
  • Not quite what we were expecting. We really didn't spot any wildlife. Certainly not 144 bird species. A man did see two owls recently. The paths were ok and the boardwalks, but not much else to see. Ducks, turtles, a few fish, a snake, lizards and a squirrel. No tropical birds. Must be the wrong season.
  • The best park to feel old Florida in the middle of urban sprawl. Geocaching, kayak/boat launch, hiking and beautiful old growth palm and oaks. Relax for the day and walk in beautiful Florida.
