I am always pleasantly surprised when a community has the foresight to set aside areas like these for future generations. The preserve is quite spectacular. There are miles of walking/cycling trails here and we spent about three hours making one of the big loops. On our trek were were able to see ibis, herons, egrets, spoonbills, and various varieties of... More

We kayaked here and it was gorgeous! I have never seen so many different species of birds in one location! There is a section that has a mangrove tunnel which was sweet. And the tower is cool to go up and see the gulf. You don't need to have a kayak to see the preserve, there is a paved path... More

November is a great time to visit Robinson. The weather is great and the preserve is beautiful. A great variety of ecosystems. Bring your bike for a lovely ride along the trails. See the "other" side of Florida.

Spent just a short time here on Thanksgiving day. It seems like a great place to get bring your kayak, bike, or walking shoes and get outdoors. A kayak aunch is available with easy access, lots of paths for walking or biking. The view from the observation tower is nice with Tampa Bay and the Skyway bridge in the background.... More

Have been visiting Robinson's since it first opened and on every visit there is something new to see or an enhancement of some kind. Since our last visit the trails have been extended and there is now an additional entrance from the causeway on Manatee Avenue. We prefer to visit early when here are less people (although we have never... More

We regularly ride our bikes or paddle or boards through the preserve. You can enter from the main park entrance or access it from the south along Manatee Blvd between the mainland and Anna Maria island. If you have the energy, ride from there over to Anna Maria and grab some lunch to refuel for the ride back. Great paths,... More

This is a FREE preserve. Nice bathroom facilities and a free parking lot. There is a beautiful visitor center and a nice little playground for small kids. The conservation efforts have been noticeable and the preserve is expanding even further. You will see what native plant species look like, no nasty pesticides and fake grass. You can go biking, part... More
