Owner description: The Edward Medard Park is tucked away in eastern Hillsborough County between Brandon and Plant City. The Park extends along 1,284 acres where a dike, control structure and reservoir offer some flood protection along the Alafia River. In 1972, under an agreement with the District, Hillsborough County developed this site as one of its largest and most popular regional parks, visited yearly by more than 400,000 people.

Great place to have a party. Lots of things to keep the kids happy. Water is so pretty. Lots of covered pavillions, overnight camping area, boat ramps and lots of parking. No reservations for pavillions but get there early to get a good one.

Nice facility. Park picnic shelters with grills. Horseback riding nearby that goes through the park. Walking trails, bath facilities, boating and apparently camping facilities. Fishing seems to be popular. Nice playground for the younger kids.

The park, or both a park and a nature preserve, has something for everyone. a playground for the kiddies, fields for ball plaring, as well as a lot of opportunities for nature watching, especially bird watching. You will see at least several dozen different birds here. And so close to Tampa and Plant city

There something special about that old Florida look on a hot spring day that stands out. It is only a little over an hour's drive from Pinellas County, Florida -- or an hour from Orlando -- to this beautiful park in Plant City, Florida, but it feels like you've also gone back in time a million years or so. Seeing all the gators poking their heads up out of the water makes it seem prehistoric. The foliage and reservoir can be viewed nicely from the boardwalk or the tower. They also have a disc golf course for those who play. The first few holes are a bit too close to the park road for my taste, but then they go back into the trees and players actually have some hills to deal with. A great park to visit, and it only costs $2 per car to get in.

I came to the Park very often, always find a few different elements that inspired my life and my passion for the photography.
