We were very disappointed to walk here during a construction period when all of the pretty parts of the preserve were closed. I think it would have been great if open but the closure put a real damper on our visit

The Robinson Nature Preserve, still being finished, is a birder's delight. It is creatively designed and attentively maintained, with the needs of both birds and visitors in mind.

This preserve is well done. Nice paved or crushed shell/sand paths to walk along or ride a bike. Great for bird watching. Don't forget sunscreen; some trails are in the sun with no shade.

Great place to walk and climb the observation platform to see the entire preserve and across the water to St. Pete. I had a couple hours while visiting the area and enjoyed the time away from the busyness.

Enjoyed this walk. It was a little longer than we first calculated. Good cloudy day activity as there is little shade. Did see a bald eagle directly overhead. Goes along bay and has an outlook tower. Good bicycle route. Not sure I would take children...More

Wonderful bike ride. Lots to see on trails. Nicely paved, can take trails that are shells, not hard to ride on. Spot where you can put in kayaks. Restrooms along the way.

This is a wonderful place to bring your bike. The paths are very nice. I really enjoy trecking out to the pier at low tide to see all different types of birds. You are up close and personal with them. It is a one mile...More

Yes, absolutely. I usually take my dogs to Desoto Landing though because bikes are allowed in Robinson. No bikes in Desoto. Enjoy!
