The park is quite big, perhaps 1000 x 500 meters. It's mostly grasslands and dams with a paved road going around it. There are supposed to be some giant mantes in the dams but they were not to be seen this day. Some locals playing...More

Also known as "sea cows" manatees are large (up to four meters) aquatic herbivores. We collected some grass in the park and went to feed these charming creatures in a dam inside the park. They don't show themselves a lot, but come up enough to...More

This park has people exercising and generally enjoying themselves. The highlight is, however, the manatees. Get some tall grass that grows everywhere in the park and swish, slap or wave in the water. The manatee come swimming to nibble their food. Very gentle creature although...More

The best thing to do is to visit these lovely Manatees. They are in the lake, inside the park. It's very good to run, and do sport activities. By night could be dangerous.

Basically I only came here for the Manatees which I got to sit and watch them feed for hours. Really cool creatures. All the grass they cut on the fields was dumped into their ponds where feeding frenzies ensued.

I walked to this park as it didn't seem far from my hotel in Quamina st. The only problem was the lack of sidewalks, and one has to be careful about the traffic. I went there to look for manatees in ponds; I did not...More
