I have lived here for years and had never been before. The trails are narrow so it's hard to walk side by side but is nice and peaceful. Trails are well marked. There was a lot of debris due to the hurricane but still nice.

Nice quiet park with trails to walk. Few overlooks to gander a view with benches to relax on. Its not very big but very shady and pretty. Nice way to spend few hrs or more in nature.

Was looking at close trails to hike or bike. Found this on google. Great place for multiple thing. Great boardwalk to stroll down and look at different types of wildlife. The exercise trail is well laid out. Great variety of exercises. Great place to spend a few hours relaxing and taking nature in.

If you are visiting the area this is definitely a place to take a walk and observe Florida wildlife. The best part is there is no fee for admission but you can make a donation. The first place you will see is the visitor center where the restrooms are. This is an interesting place as they offer hands on activities... More

The creek is nice to view there are gators and manatee, turtles at the right time of year. Great for quick nature day. There is a nature center. Lots... More

There is a free nature trail that takes one through several Florida coastal environments with explanatory signs. There is also a building with rest rooms, a drinking fountain, and interpretive displays. This is a hidden jewel just behind the Palm Bay civic center and adjacent to the library.

A great place to get close to nature. T he boardwalk is a great place to walk. There is an exercise trail with stations for specific exercises that work specific muscle groups. The visitors center has plenty of information on local plants and animals. Wild animals can be seen in various spots in the sanctuary.
