What a wonderful place to walk, hike, fish and view nature as it was meant to be seen. On Lake Dora, you come up close to gators, turtles and trees that only Florida has .A special place for all ages.

A beautiful boardwalk that extends into Lake Dora, lots of birds and old-Florida vegetation make Palm Island a great place for a relaxing walk.
