Great place to take a relaxing walk. Features a lot of educational kiosks, a dock overlooking the pond, and even has an adolescent alligator kept for educational purposes.

This is a beautiful park and would be great to take your children for a walk around and very educational. Any place that has a live alligator is worth 4 stars

Maintenance is being conducted. Staff apologetic that a lot of undergrowth and trees were taken out leaving trails needing to be remarked. Caution tape around trees was redirecting me to tracks leading to nowhere. New mulch obscured the trail. Never got beyond the trail head for the 1 mile. Even had two of the locals scratching their heads. No dogs allowed.

Short, easy, but interesting loop. Features an area with natural springs, an old farmstead, and a pond. Only downside is the route stays near the small preserve's boundary for most of its distance, so roads and houses are frequently seen.

There are three main trails here; a 1-mile, 2-mile amd 5K. Each trail is marked with a different color badge, Blue, Green and Yellow. The trails are easy and a good place to take the whole family. There are lots of information boards and kiosk, marking plants and trees and also some information about the area. The main reason I don't rate this 5-stars... too much civilization in the area. Two main roads border the edges of the preserve, so road noise is distracting, The preserve also borders some housing neighborhoods and in areas you are looking into someones back yard. No dogs are allowed in the preserve. In spite of the detractors, it's still a good overall place to take a hike and have family and friends join in.
