It was wonderful to be able to identify the plants of the Bahamas. The trail through the woods was great. Loved the pond set up.

We had a wonderful walk through the exotic landscape on a recent family vacation. A must-see if you're in Eleuthera.

The park is great! I wish we would have gone at the start of our trip as we have recognized way more of the plants and birds in Eleuthera after visiting. The park took just under 2 hours to see all of the trails and various exhibits. The staff were very friendly and gave a nice overview of the park... More

What an amazing experience/education. The property is very well laid out, The young lady who gave us the tour was extremely knowledgeable about the pants and wild fife. I will strongly recommend you visit the Leon Levy Native Preserve.

A beautiful natural view of Eleuthera. Informative, interesting and wonderful to look at. The views are spectacular. Well worth a visit. The entrance fee ($10) is definitely worth it to help towards preservation and upkeep of this lovely place.

This was well worth a trip. I rarely see a place outside of a large city that is so well done. Plants and flora were marked to allow for a great learning experience. The unique aspects of the island that were displayed so beautifully surprised me. Can't wait to go back to see more. You could spend a whole day... More

This is a beautiful park with lots of trails through the tropical forest! Beautiful birds, lizards, all kinds of plants. Very informative! We did find something not in the brochure, a Bahamian Boa slithered on the trail in front of us! Made my husband's day! The lady at the Welcome Center was very nice and helpful! Just be aware that...
