  • We had a wonderful time there, it was peaceful and quiet and beautiful, and the staff were very kind. We really enjoyed walking the paths. I would give it 5 stars for myself, except I have to admit that not everyone would find it so. It's small and while we loved it, it won't have enough to keep people active if they are looking for something really engaging.
  • It’s one of my new favorite places in central Florida. Lots of wildlife and people that care about nature. I learned so much by going there and taking some classes on Friday the wildlife and nature. I hope to keep going to this place and support it as it brings education to the people.
