  • Stopped in to see if they had bike trails, which they did not, but great natural park. Good wildlife viewing and observation of Turkey Creek. Easy to walk trails and boardwalk. They're still repairing...  more »
  • Took a stroll to this wonderful garden spot with my wife and the flowers and plants were amazing. There were all species of birds and many different flowers, very serene.  more »
  • This is a nice place to go for a walk. The trails are in great shape. There are a few that are still being worked but most are open. Plenty of vegetation to look at but we were there in early afternoo...  more »

  • I loved this place! It is so beautiful and peaceful. It is hard to believe it is right near a major street - once you get in you do not hear that. You feel like you are in a totally different place. There are so many places to just get away from the hustle and bustle and quiet your mind. Definitely would love to go back. You will see some wildlife - just sit back and enjoy!
  • I really enjoyed the walk through the sanctuary on the boardwalk. I was able to take some really good pictures. The weather was very nice around 70 degrees. I am sure this place probably gets hot in the summer. This place would be great for family's to visit. The raccoons are overly friendly and are looking for a handout. One raccoon came up to me, stood on his hind legs and tugged at my jeans. I halfway expected them to be holding a sign saying photos for food. Make sure you allow at least 90 minutes. I did not have that long and there were areas I didn't get to see.
  • One of our favorite places to go for a hike. Really great board walk that meanders around the sanctuary and river. Lots of wildlife to see. On this day we saw lots of turtles, a few alligators and the big find a mom and baby manatees. Unfortunately, our favorite section of the boardwalk by the river was damaged in the hurricane and is currently closed off.
  • Well maintained preserved area. It has a great variety of native plants. You can observe wild animals such as red cardinals, tortoises, fish, different kind of butterflies. Great for hiking or jogging.
  • This is a beautiful place that my daughter and I love to come and walk through. I really like all the different wildlife that can be seen in this place. Only thing is you can't forget the sunscreen and bug spray because this is Florida, they are both really needed!
