  • Urban sanctuary with a variety of ecosystems to enjoy and learn about. This preserve is far more than a fenced-in open space to keep out development. There is vibrant research activity related to the local University's environmental programs, but the welcome center remains family friendly with informative displays for even the youngest of nature lovers. The staff is committed and caring. Don't miss the aviary for close-up looks at a few awesome birds, big and small - including a Bald Eagle. Worth the small membership fee if you're nearby and want an oasis for an escape from time-to-time.
  • Boyd Hill is great! Peaceful nature preserve tucked away off of 9th St S. Has many native Florida habitats in one location and an aviary where they rehabilitate injured birds.
  • Great trails to walk around and see some nature, including the alligators, birds, snakes... Check the walls that they organize periodically as they are interesting and very educating
  • Favorite part of St Pete! I love nature and this is the biggest wooded natural area left here.. rare wildflowers And tons of animals you don't see other places. How anyone could give low rating is beyond me. Definitely worth a visit if you're in town!
  • I love Boyd Hill. The welcome center is informative, the staff is friendly, and the park is wonderful. It is rarely busy during the week, so you can walk the trails for miles with only alligators, birds, critters, and the occasional ranger or volunteer for company. What better escape from our increasingly frenetic urb? O, and sculptures by Paul Eppling are not to be missed!
