Really nice shaded park with great Florida oaks. The boardwalks winds their way thru the trees and give you a feeling of what Florida was like 100 year ago. The peacocks are showing their colorful feathers this time of year.

Excellent rescue, rehab, release park. Wonderful nature park to walk through. Peacocks everywhere! Staff helpful and informative. Only complaint is hours of operation, but it is volunteers and park is free (I wanted to go on Tuesday but rearranged other plans in order to see this park, glad that I did).

This facility rehabs injured wildlife and features a boardwalk thru the forest and swamp. Check out the caged birds of prey.

We were disappointed as it is in disrepair. We did however appreciate the attention to helping injured wildlife. We would have liked to have seen signage more appropriate and some things weren't even labeled. The nature trail is beautiful though and we saw many birds lizards and a toad before we got to the pond where the big gator was... More

Don't let first appearances scare you away. This is a little hidden gem. It has a small inside area with some live snakes, turtles, frogs, spiders...and some stuffed local wildlife. Outside there are several birds of prey to see (Penelope the bald eagle, Elvis the vulture, a couple of falcons and several different types of owls), we were there for... More

Aside from the nature aspect, there are also lots of planned events. Take a walk on the wild side and bring a bagged snack.

Place is being totally re-furbished, but worth a visit for an early morning walk and a coffee. A few turtles in pond(s), but not Busch Gardens or Lowry... More

My wife and I stumbled across this little park while exploring clearwater after Sunday brunch. What a great surprise! This municipal park is free to the public and is tucked away in a residential area. The have lots of tree/Moss covered trails, but the highlight is the bird displays. They have a dozen or so native birds of prey on... More

We really enjoy this park; bird watching, sighting alligators and a small aviary. It is a real gem and an easy walk. Wheelchair accessible paths.
