My wife & I got married here on 5/6/2017. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and will supply chairs, tables, and minimal help throughout your wedding day. You can use your own caterer and vendors of choice (many other local venues make you use theirs)....More

Lovely place to bring a lunch or a book and just enjoy nature. Grounds are well kept, with different sections of plants Dog friendly. There is a play ground for the kids, and a covered picnic area.

Love stopping here to see the flowers, turtles and birds. A beautiful park to sit and reflect. Not a big space but nice to see.

It is free to visit but there are rental fees if you are looking to use it as a venue with a few different options. Rentals are done through Manatee County so if you look on their website you should find it.
