First thing you should notice around the education building/bathrooms is the landscaping, it's all done in native vegetation. The only park I've noticed that plants Beauty Berries. There is a lot of great information around on the walls where they have the animals documented. A majority of the trails are shaded so it stays relativity cool (for Florida). This is... More

We are regular visitors to st pete beach area and had never visited here before, glad we did! Really worth a visit, the tropical plants and trees and flowers are beautiful, there are also flamingos and parrots. The waterfall too is lovely, we spent a couple of hours here , plenty of benches to relax on as you amble around.... More

Another "attraction" we found thanks to TripAdvisor. We were hoping to see an Alligator in the "wild" rather than at the zoo and we were lucky enough to spot one here. Only one, but pleased to have seen its head poking out of the water. We had a really nice walk here, there are different routes you can take and... More

Saw 4 Gators from the bridge small ones but still impressive when you come from a state with no Aligators.

What a great place to visit. As a family from Indianapolis we don't usually see a lot of wildlife outside the zoo. This place was beautiful. Saw several alligators-including baby alligators!! We walked for an hour and still didn't see all the trails!

When we come to Florida in the month of October, one of the parks that we frequent is this park. We like this park because we always see alligators. From the little visitors center, when you cross the bridge by the visitors center, you usually see alligators in October hanging out around the bridge. If you continue on across the... More

I found this park on accident when I first moved to this area. Since then I have been back a few times. It's a great park to take out of town visitors who want to see Florida wildlife, like alligators. If you go in the evening, make sure to bring bug spray and wear full coverage clothing.

If you want to see an actual swamp without going to the trouble of renting an airboat this is the place for you! Since it is a park the cost is zero! Amazing plants and animals in their natural setting gives a different perspective on what it takes to survive in the wild. We started our day here before it... More

What a nice park in St. Pete! This place is cool! A nice boardwalk through the swamp - watch for baby gators! Flowers and trees abound and it's a great thing to do on a cloudy, breezy day. The only drawback is seeing how much trash people throw into the swamp. Use this place as a way to teach your... More
