  • Absolutely beautiful park! It's nestled in the back of a neighborhood and out of the way. It's a nice little oasis in the middle of the hustling bustling city. There is plenty of parking at the entrance of the board walk and welcome center. There is a neat little animal guide at the beginning of the trail in the welcome center. Be sure to look for all the little critters as you walk through the tree lined boardwalk! The boardwalk makes a complete circle with 2 noteworthy look outs. One of the look outs offers an unrivaled view of the lake with a 2 story balcony. We came across families on nature walks, friends hanging out after school and some joggers. It's really a great place for all kinds of out door adventures. There is also a nice area in the front for picnics and board games! I highly recommend this park.
  • Nice, educational park. Lots of native florida wildlife. We saw two young alligators, large soft shell turtles, tons of large fish, hungry squirrels and many gopher tortoise holes (but no actual tortoises. Facilities are nice and accessible. Cool water from fountains. Overall, 5 star park.
  • Stunning, well maintained park. A little over a mile of trails to walk, with lovely benches and pavilions to rest under in the shade. You could easily spend 2-3 hours here just enjoying the natural beauty. Don't miss the observation tower, and keep your eyes peeled for Gators!
  • This park has wonderful views, and is great for trail running! The boardwalk is pretty long and goes over swampy areas with plenty of wildlife. Downsides are that there are no mile markers, but this park seems more for strolling than exercise. I will definitely be returning here.
  • Back to Nature, saw many birds as well as lizards, plants and yes Alligators!!! Loved how it was a natural setting in the middle of a neighborhood and just yards from the interstate.. Trails are well marked and a joy to walk.
