Beautiful views

Spent the afternoon walking and climbing the observation tower. Fantastic views of Tampa Bay, the Skyway, the Manatee river and marshes. So relaxing!

This is a beautiful park. You can kayak, walk, bike....if you don't have your own kayak you can rent one online. Rest rooms at entrance were nice and clean. Bring water and sunscreen as there is very little shade. Paths are crushed shell and paved with wood bridges over water. They are well marked. Will definitely go again either with... More

This is a well used natural habitat with many trails for biking, hiking, birdwatching or just plan sauntering along. One trail skirts along Tampa Bay and the outhouse of the Manatee River with an amazing view of the Sunshine Skyway. Picinic benches, workout areas and a lookout tower are just some of the facilities available. This Preserve is immaculately clean.

We spent a couple of hours one beautiful Saturday morning enjoying Robinson Preserve while visiting Anna Maria Island which is nearby. The approximately 3 mile trail was flat and easy to walk.

Last year we enjoyed watching the great horned owl nest from the visitors center. Excellent for hiking, biking, paddleboarding and kayaking. Many people were walking with their pets - please clean up after your dog if you bring to the park. Saw roseate spoonbills at our last visit.

What a wonderful way to get some exercise. Walk or bike or canoe/kayak. Outstanding birdlife. Walk up the tower and survey a vast park of the Preserve. A perfect place.

Great preserve for seeing the wildlife using anyone of the activities in the heading. So close to getting from there to the beaches as well. Kayaking from the preserve out into the bay area really great!

This preserve has a 3.1 mile loop trail that takes you past salt marshes, Tampa Bay, and a cool tower to look over the bay and Anna Marie Island. Also interesting birdwatching. Bike also ride the trail.

We took our bicycles one day and Kayaked another. Both were enjoyable. We were hoping to see wildlife, but it just isn't there. But, the preserve itself is very nice. Such fun Kayaking through the preserve and in the mangroves. We were out about four hours.

Robinson preserve is a delightful place to walk, bike, kayak and canoe. The trails are wide and fish and birds are plentiful. It is quiet and very well kept. A great place for photos.
