  • Unique place to visit. We visit Marco at least once a year, and were looking for something new to visit. This fit the bill. It's a short walk, but a cool place to visit. There are only 2 parking.....  more »
  • Only complaint was limited parking. Very short path, but great spot to observe small birds of Florida.  more »
  • A small preserve area in the middle of a neighborhood full of mansions. Got a kind of creepy vibe from the area. Not much to see in the preserve and it felt a bit like a maze.
  • Very interesting the shell mouth conserved around the basement of what was Mr Otter place...
