It was a lovely day, perfect to be outside. We went midday and there was plenty of parking Don't let the roadwork dissuade you once you get off I-275. Walked down the boardwalk and saw the dry swamp and a couple squirrels. Near one end people were congregating by the side and there was a LARGE mother alligator and over... More

Lovely park and well worth searching for. The boardwalk made for a great morning walk. We saw momma gator and her 20 offspring!

It was a cold and rainy day when we stopped here on the way to the airport, but it was still a very enjoyable walk on the boardwalks to see bird life and even alligators. Saw a large alligator and a lot of baby ones clustered around one of the bridges on a boardwalk loop trail. I wish the day... More

We always love this park for a nice walk in a Florida natural area! Many types of wildlife can often be seen including alligators, armadillos, and lots of ducks, birds, etc. The boardwalks and paths are well-maintained as well as the lookout tower over the lake. There are clean restrooms in a building with some nice displays and also nice... More

Lovely boardwalk in a true Florida setting. Watch for birds, alligators and small mammals. A bit shorter walk, but still nice.

I went here by myself to pass sometime. It's an easy walk and very pretty. I saw a mama alligator and different sets of babies so that was exciting.

Came across this place by accident. It is a nature reserve where you do not have to pay to enter, there are no fixed attractions but it offers a pleasant interlude.... A raised boardwalk through some relatively natural (dry) swamp. A chance to see an alligator, perhaps also an armadillo and the odd tortoise. Child friendly and a pleasant, easy... More

I've been to this park several times and always see animals. Your guaranteed to see water birds, song birds, and turtles. Depending on time of year, you often can find baby alligators as well. Beautiful and serene walks on trails and on board walks.

I like the meandering boardwalks and newish sidewalk underneath a canopy of trees. Flora and fauna change with the seasons.
