  • Absolutely beautiful park! It's nestled in the back of a neighborhood and out of the way. It's a nice little oasis in the middle of the hustling bustling city. There is plenty of parking at the entrance of the board walk and welcome center. There is a neat little animal guide at the beginning of the trail in the welcome center. Be sure to look for all the little critters as you walk through the tree lined boardwalk! The boardwalk makes a complete circle with 2 noteworthy look outs. One of the look outs offers an unrivaled view of the lake with a 2 story balcony. We came across families on nature walks, friends hanging out after school and some joggers. It's really a great place for all kinds of out door adventures. There is also a nice area in the front for picnics and board games! I highly recommend this park.
  • Nice, educational park. Lots of native florida wildlife. We saw two young alligators, large soft shell turtles, tons of large fish, hungry squirrels and many gopher tortoise holes (but no actual tortoises. Facilities are nice and accessible. Cool water from fountains. Overall, 5 star park.
