  • We always love visiting Turkey Creek. My daughters are fascinated looking for new animals as we make our way through the preserve. The love it when we get to the river and try to find manatees, even if we only find turtles. It is always a pleasant walk along the boardwalk, and depending on how adventurous we are feeling there are some really nice hiking and running trails to explore as well. Highly recommend!
  • We saw a really cute turtle right as we walked in, and he wasn't afraid of us at all which is a good sign that he hasn't been bothered or hurt by people yet. There were quite a few butterflies right in the entrance. The trails are really good for walking and getting your steps in, and they have a lot of information both on the trail and in the pamphlets you can get at the beginning of the board walk. The water there is beautiful too.
  • A wonderful walk through nature accompanied by a well written self-guided tour. Bring the kids and some snacks for a relaxing get away in your own backyard. Just make certain to leave nothing but your footsteps when you leave.
  • Just a beautiful place, the ranger and attendee at the nature center were just awesome. My wife and I both had a excellent conversation with both the attendee and ranger. I recommend turkey creek to any and all who love nature.
  • Great place for hiking and/or bird watching. They have dirt, natural trails as well as boardwalks. It is a pretty large park so bring water with you, especially if it is hot outside. This park is full of birds and other wildlife so do bring your camera as well. This park also has a small education/visitors center which is great for children and parents alike. Staff are friendly and helpful.
