This is a tiny speck of green space located right next to Gulf Blvd. It has a boardwalk that goes all the way to the inter coastal waterway. You may see dolphins but its mostly birds that are active around the park.

Hidden low key place for nature and education. Free and interesting if you like animals (mostly birds) and/or have kids with you.

This is a small nature park but offers a ton of all that is good about Florida. We come at least once a week. You enter to a small parking lot that miraculously always has a spot available. There is a small building with public bathrooms and a water fountain. There are picnic tables that are covered from sun or... More

There is more to the town of Indian Shores than just their beaches. The little town has a "town square" nature park featuring benches, restrooms, water fountains and a boardwalk that goes all the way out to the intercoastal waterway. It has little signs that explain local wildlife. A great place for anyone who wants to learn about Florida's wildlife.

This, by American standards,is a small park, directly between the road and the waterway. A lovely place to linger and watch the world go by.

Anyone who is a walker will appreciate the spotlessly clean restrooms that are easily accessible at the front of the park. The city has done a wonderful job of landscaping the grounds.

This park has been thoughtfully planned so visitors see and learn about a variety of plant and wildlife. Walk takes you out to the inter-coastal, past a play park for kids and includes a dog-park.

this is very short walk but worth it. Just off the busy street you enter a different world and end up on the inner coastal where we are told you can sometimes see dolphins swimming by..

I agree with some previous comments about the limitations of wildlife and noise from road traffic, however, this is still a lovely nature park that leads to the intercoastal waters via a well maintainted boardwalk. The boardwalk ends on the water and is a nice spot for a bit of fishing. We spent a good half hour just nature watching.
