The preserve is named for a previous resident, Ernest Otter a one-time owner who had occupied the property until 1997.

  • Only complaint was limited parking. Very short path, but great spot to observe small birds of Florida.

  • Great history with a stroll in what would be a beautiful little trail. Seems it’s not being well cared for. Things were very overgrown. Did meet a couple of residents however.
  • Otter Pond Nature Preserve is located on Marco Island. It is a quiet place filled with native plants. There is a walking path with signage explaining the area. It's a habitat for different kinds of butterflies and birds. Very peaceful.
