This is a great place to see aligators and a variety of birds. It is perfect for kids. Even if the weather is not great for going to the beach, this is a perfect alternative. They have an indoor place we took our granddaughter and she had a wonderful time. They also have a tram but you will need to call ahead to reserve as it is very popular

Wasn't given much options when it came to nature parks in the area but needed to go get some sun. This place was great. Lots of wildlife, fantastic dirt trails spanning a few miles it seemed. Sad that it was right by a somewhat busy road but the place was so big you didnt even hear the traffic. Would absolutely recommend.

A little nature in a big city....A great spot to visit tucked away.... You can also take your lunch with you and enjoy the peace and quiet. Also you get to learn about nature things that you did not know.

My husband and I took our son(12), daughter (9) and niece (6) here. It was a little rainy, but not bad. We saw an alligator, so that was cool. There were lots of birds and could see fish. We really enjoyed the trails around the marsh/water. We spent about 2-3 hours, but we didn't walk all trails. We didn't stay for the tram ride. The main office was nicely set up for kids, lots to see and feel. We are lunch at a picnic table out front and the kids enjoyed the playgrounds.

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.
