We had a really great time here, beautiful lake for kayaking and great trails for bike riding. We found a "beach" the kids took their shoes off and waddled in it we also saw dolphins which was a real treat. Nice views from the tower

We love this preserve and they are just about ready to open the recent renaturalized area. The main trail takes just under one hour to walk in a loop.

The Robinson is already a terrific place for communing with nature - either by bike, kayak, or on foot - with miles of paths and waterways for wildlife observation. And it is very excited that a major expansion of preserved land (with more trails) is underway. We enjoyed both some of the walking paths and a wonderfully long bike ride... More

We discovered this reserve through Trip Advisor so we walked the grounds during our visit to Bradenton. It is just a gorgeous area to walk and discover wildlife. We did not realize that you could kayak, but they do rent kayaks and would be an absolute beautiful place to do just that. I collect postcards for places I visit and... More

This is a great place to walk, bike ride and kayak with the whole family. Dogs on leashes are welcome, too.

Great place for nature walks and biking. There are lots of natural tidewater ponds within the property and you will see many different birds each season. Recently I saw white pelicans, ospreys and a rosette spoonbill among many other birds. It can get quite busy during the weekends in the winter, but being such a large property that will soon...

This place is gorgeous, perfect for a bike, dog walk, bike ride or jog. Different trails that you can take and sign posted. Benches all the way around if you need to take a breather. Lots of different species of birds and the views are gorgeous. Really enjoyable !

I read about this free place in tripadvisor, and wanted to check it out. My husband and I brought our kayaks and bikes and spent half the day exploring. You can rent kayaks and/or go on a guided kayaking tour, or you can launch your own. We paddled along a fairly wide open area that led out into a lake.... More

You can do all kinds of things here. There is a kayak launching area which is great. Small playground for kids. Bike trails and walking trails. Lots of wildlife and a house which is nice

First time visit. Required lots of walking if you don't mind walking, especially a lots of open space and you will surely get a lots of sunshine. Recommended if you have bicycles. Clean surrounding and it has a map of the entire trails. Recommended if you are an outdoors person otherwise you will complain too much sun :)
