  • Great place for a walk or bike ride. Some heavily shaded trails. The trail along "cells" are usually not shaded unless you come early morning late eveing. Couple of restrooms. Pavilions. Play area for kids. Boardwalk area. Bike repair station...has an air pump and most tools need to do quick repair or tightening.
  • The park is an awesome facility to gain ecological education for all ages. There are buildings and activities to find well planned and interesting events that take place in the seasons of ecology in this area. It is also a nice place relax or go for fitness or find some personal space to decompress, don't worry about overcrowding. I see cyclists, yoga enthusiasts, animal watchers, bird watchers and photographers enjoying the park. I don't know for sure but I have not seen any board paddlers or kayakers, these activities may not be allowed due to the alligators but you can certainly call and find out. The activities I use the park for are photography and fitness, I wish I could participate in a few of the many educational activities they have. I have raised honey bees and thoroughly enjoyed working my hive. There are two honey bee hives at the facility. I don't know that this would be something that visitors could do as it requires clothing and tools specific to working the hives.
  • Fantastic place to get out in nature. I went early in the morning and could hear birds singing. I saw quite a few birds, a turtle, and several alligators. The gators are further out in the distant pond mostly. If you're the first one out or tallest watch out for spiderwebs across the boardwalk.
  • Great place to visit and go for a nature walk. I stopped by at around 8:00 AM on Sunday and was able to see a wide variety of life: alligators, turtles, anoles, herons, hawks, and frogs. After 11:00 it got really hot and there wasn’t too much shade, so I headed back. I will definitely come back at sunrise to get the most out of this place!
  • We went doing non-business hours, but it was still great. We walked a couple of trails, played at the playground, and ate lunch at a little stage. My girls had fun!
