I took the family to this location for the first time this past weekend. We had a nice time and walked a few miles together. There are paved, rock, and mulch-laid paths to walk on that are nice and wide. Kayaking is an option (I don't know if they rent them out though) on the waterways that intertwine the hard paths and there are at least two launch points. You can store your kayaks on site in locked locations. There is a lookout tower about 3 stories tall that was really nice. Many people brought their dogs, bikes, and or children to enjoy the park. Good, clean fun. I recommend this place highly.
Great little park on the West side of Bradenton. It has a perfect little launch spot for kayaking, canoeing, or paddle boarding. Wonderful water and mangrove habitat birding spot with a great lookout tower at least two stories high. And no alligators! I will be back to enjoy it again soon 🚣🏃🦅🦆
