  • Awesome place to go and hang out on the beach on Lake Weir. There is a picnic are and boat launch also. Our Church, Everyday Church has 2 outings there a year under the big pavilion.  more »
  • Lovely setting on Lake Weir! Well maintained. Two beautiful playgrounds and wide clean trails. Very scenic! Quiet place to explore!  more »
  • Nature preserve, people should read and obey the rules of a County park. More and more people are taking their dogs out there. Itโ€™s against the park rules. No domestic animals. Itโ€™s to protect the wildlife. Where are the workers. I have been on the trails numerous times in the last year and Dogs with no leashes. Visitors should be able to feel safe, that is not safe to me. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฆplease protect your parks.
  • Took my granddaughters this week and I was impressed. Parking was close, tables in the shade as well as pavilions and grills. Playground in the shade. Outdoor showers that actually worked and the cleanest bathrooms and changing rooms. No rocks just sandy bottom lake with no big drop off. Water was warm and pretty clear.
