Pleasant nature walk

This park provides a pleasant nature walk, complete with informative signage. The boardwalk is very well constructed. I would like to visit this again and walk the entire length.

Its difficult to find off Del Prado but once you get there, its a very nice 6' wide boardwalk through a nature preserve on the Caloosahatchee River. We didn't see any wildlife or birds but it was a pleasant shaded walk through mangroves. The Preserve is co-located with the impressive Veterans memorials.

Four Mile Cove is a great place for visitors from out of state to see. The walk shows the natural beauty of the area. It is an easy walk out to the river through the mangroves.

This is a very easy, short nature walk. It was very peaceful to do in the morning and a great way to start the day.

This is an easy stroll on a modern boardwalk that will take you through a large coastal mangrove swamp to two piers overlooking the Caloosahatchee River. We did it smoothly with a baby stroller and our 9-month old granddaughter. Be sure to stop and see the reproduction of the Iwo Jima memorial. It's an impressive reminder of the sacrifices made...

A nice place for a walk in the mornings. Piers to walk out on; boardwalk through an old mangrove forest. They have kayaks for rent and trails to paddle through.

One of my favorite walking parks both along the hundreds of feet of boardwalk through the mangoes and out to the pier in the river with great views of shore birds and river scenery. The boardwalk trail is naked with informational signage highlighting the local animals and fauna. Well worth a visit for 2 hours.

This place is perfect for an afternoon stroll, the mangroves all around give the place a peaceful vibe. You can see animals some times and it's a great place for some cool pictures. The information board are also interesting.
