Phinizy Swamp Nature Park Reviews

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.
