Neat little park for the kids or older people. Its only half a mile and most of it is on an elevated board walk so its impossible to get off trail or lost. My 4 year old loves it as we usually see an armadillo or two. 5 different resting areas olong the way as well. The park is very well kept as it is a Brevard County Park.
