  • This park is in a crowded suburban area, but when in the park, it's quiet and natural. There is good hiking and kayaking/ canoeing. There are many types of birds here to observe.  more »
  • I went there specifically to kayak. There are only very limited facilities there, but that's OK. I don't really need help to kayak. There are kayak and paddle board rentals if you don't have your own....  more »
  • I enjoyed my first visit to Werner-Boyce, but as my title indicates, I do not consider it a state park. I would say it is more like a preserve area or. There are a few picnic tables, not hardly enough...  more »
  • I would walk the trails before the new improvements to this park. Two weeks ago my husband and I took our two dogs along with us and we were surprised there was a small, intimate picnic table. We enjoyed our picnic by the water. Saw quite a few people kayaking in the water, people walking the trails as we enjoyed the beauty of this park. Everyone we came across were super friendly people. Others were there walking their dogs as well. The little library in the front of the park. If you choose a book please replace with another. Let's be Pasco Proud and treasure the nature around us. Please pick up your trash. $3.00 parking fee is 100% worth it. I hope this helps you. I know I'm addicted to this park.
  • Trails are beautiful, you can see wildlife. Spotted an eagle's nest on one trail. Picnic tables and some shared books to read. Fishing is allowed, seems to be an abundance of mullet fish? Not sure I got the name right. Some mosquitoes, especially on the shadiest parts. Nice benches to sit, especially on the water under a tree, a good spot to sit and contemplate life. Only reason it's not 5 stars is that the trails are short.
  • A lot of work has been done to this location. It has made it a go to spot for me. The only thing holding this back from 5 stars is clearing out a little more by the gulf side to actually see the gulf and get that gulf sea breeze. It would be perfect for family's if they added a playground and some covered areas with grills.
  • The state has some nerve calling this a Springs State Park. It's a muddy marsh with trails that lead to fences, parking lots and absolutely no where. There MIGHT be 4 places to see water and that's mud. No signage telling you what spring you're headed for, no direction whatsoever. It's basically like stopping on the side of the road and going for a walk. The best part about this place was leaving!
  • First state park to open in Pasco County. Still working on building out the amenities, but it will be great when fully equipped.
