Went to park to ride our road bikes. They have paved paths throughout park. Also have kayak and bike rentals, children's playgrounds. Gazebos can be rented, picnic tables, and grills. There is also a Nature Center. Check for times when it's open. Nature paths...

A great, free entrance park with lots to do. Sporting events and quiet walking areas. A great, clean dog park. Golfing and fishing. A weekend getaway on the cheap.

This park is great because there is always something going on. It has a little bit of everything for every age bracket. Great walking trails and exercise equipment.

An unbelievable amount of solo and group activities and a beautiful dog park here: water skiing, remote control boats, kayaking, pedal boats, dirt bike trails, golf course, tennis courts, baseball fields, soccer field, 3 big pavilions for group parties, fishing, "frisbee" or "disk" golf, running and exercise trails, a big nature center with nature trails, 40 personal lake-side covered picnic tables with BBQ grills, in over 1,000 acres of beautiful tropical land that you can setup and relax in. The owl pictured is a full time resident in the Nature Center whose name is "hooter," he is only about 8 inches high and very shy which makes him so adorable.... Always have to stop bye and say hello to my buddy Hooter.
