We recently took a tram tour of this 248 acre jewel in St Petersburg Fl.

Ken our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge and we learned so much about the history of this wonderful park.

We were lucky to see alligators, many species of birds , snakes and land tortoises.

The admission price is very reasonable and the educational center and gift shop will delight everyone in the family.

I was fortunate enough to experience the group camping here at Boyd Hill. It's rustic, but that's a big part of the charm. If you have a group, especially kids, and want to experience real Florida, check into the group camping or even just a day here. It's inexpensive and the staff is super friendly and really enjoys teaching young people about the plants and wildlife. If you're not from Florida, this is a great opportunity to see a gator in its natural habitat. There are also special events offered, including special summer camps for the kids, so be sure to ask.

We took the tram tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was engaging, knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy teaching us about the park. We saw alligators, tortoises and many birds. We were ages 4 months to 85 and everyone loved it.

If you are disabled like I am and a pusher/power chair user, this scenic trail offers a lot of scenic views. There are some bumps in the road and sidewalks, but nothing steep you can't manuever around. The trail is somewhat accessible with boardwalks and flat ground areas to roll over. If you come to gravel, there will be flat surfaces to easily roll over. All in all you will be able to roll over it ok. There is one incline to go up. For those who might need a little push you might consider a traveling companion to help you. I love this trail as there a lot of birds and different noises to keep you amused. Have a good time, it only takes about hour to travel.
