Overview

The Savannas Preserve State Park encompasses close to 7,000 acres of natural area. The Savannas contains the largest, most ecologically intact stretch of freshwater marsh in Southeast Florida. Our main entrance, located off of Walton Road, offers visitors a number of ways to explore the park. There, we have an Education Center (Open Thurs-Mon, 9 am to 5 pm), a Canoe Launch and several miles of trails. Most of our trails are multi-use and are open to pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians. The Park has several other entrances including one on Jensen Beach Blvd, which connects to the Main Entrance via a 5.5 mile trail, and an entrance off of Savannah Road that features the Hawk's Bluff Trail. The Park also has two remote locations: Evans Creek Canoe Launch and Miller Property. Evans Creek is located in the 8900 Block of US1 in Port St Lucie. Miller Property is located at the end of Lewis Street in Fort Pierce. This area features several miles of trails.

Savannas is a lovely, natural savanna, but it is definitely not a place for wild excitement or great variation of environment. You ride down a long, winding road through palmetto groves, pine trees and marsh, to an open area surrounded about halfway by a lake....More

I love these parks you find to get away of all the fast lanes of the area. Great views, if your lucky you’ll see some birds, etc.or even alligators. Great place for photos and just some quietness

See Florida the way it was before it was “discovered.” Miles of trails whether in foot, bike, horse, or kayak let you explore as you wish. Add to your life list with birds not found easily unless you travel: Florida scrub jay, anhinga, cormorants, and...More

The area has good hiking trails that can take you all the way to Easy Street, literally. Great canoe launch area usually has lots of birds and other critters around in the low swamp like area. Nice nature center with presentations and exhibits.

Water has been too low for kayaks. Call their office for updates. Don't think they have bike rentals. Try Ironhorse Bike Rentals on Hutchinson Island
