It's a good day hike spot. There are many little trails so it's nice to be able to pick how far you want to go by combining some of them. Some of the trails aren't marked clearly and there are many service trails, so keep your map close and your head thinking and you'll be fine.

Several trails, dirt and paved, all great for easy bicycle riding or walking. Some trails more scenic than others. Located about 13 small alligators in the distance, several types of birds, trees, flowers,and stopped counting after 200 butterflies. Very scenic, always something nice to look at. Bring your camera, and your sense of adventure. Remember, it is all up to you to have a good time. Area is loaded with incredible history. Great places (not all) to let the kids run & explore with adult supervision. We took our 6 yr old, and he did great. Good idea- bring binocullars with flower and bird books to identify your findings along the way. Take only pictures, leave only footprints. Please keep our parks litter free.

Great spot for birding, hiking and/or biking. Wood storks, herons, egrets, warblers, painted bunting, grebes, coots, and other migratory birds and ducks find the ponds and wooded areas perfect for shelter and nurture. Home, too, for alligators and turtles. Trails are flat and groomed. Small nature/visitor center on property. Restrooms available at center. Various trails crisscross the area, most leading to wildlife viewing areas.
