Cool stop

We didn't know what to expect but this was a neat park. Plan on walking a good bit to see the whole park.

Overall, not much to do here but worth a stop if you are driving through Key Largo. If you've seen Mangrove swamps elsewhere, this is no big deal but, I did manage to see a Mangrove Skipper which was fun for me, as I'm always looking out for butterflies.

The path is wide, the terrain is fairly level. Easy walking. Bring water and your sense of curiosity along !

This is a very nice 2 1/2 mile stroll through this state park. Something new for a midwestern hillbilly! You can never learn enough about the ecosystem that makes the Florida Keys tick. There is so much more to do if you only open your eyes. This little park is no exception.

There are 1 1/2 mile and 3 mile walks. We took the shorter one but as pleasant as the walk was there was not much to see.

The trail is just a green tunnel through a former housing develpment. There is an old man made canal through the center. I would not call it scenic. I visited ion December 26 and there were still mosquitos. There's really nothing interesting about it. I say a total of one bird on the loop so there isn't any wildlife to... More

You park outside and pay via the honest route. You pay $2.50 per person and put it in an envelope and away you go with your walk. We were there early morning and bugs were way down. This was an old neighborhood that was purchased and all homes were demolished to allow the natural habitat that is indigenous to the... More

I parked at the front gate. Like most Florida parks, I had to place money in an envelope to enter the park. I arrived shortly after dawn, when I would have seen or heard the most birds and animals. The walk was uneventful, but pretty. This is a botanical garden, so they do not manage for wildlife. The paths were... More

stopped here on the way home to Orlando. Had never taken the Card Sound Rd. before and this was one of the first "stops" along the way. Lots of foliage and trees you'd expect in a 'hammock'. 50 yds into the walk I was swatting' and slapping and I had not put any deet on, so I dashed back to... More

I loved this place since the first time I stepped foot in there. I even considered and looked into getting married in one of the spots off the path where they have a long wall of coral and an opening amongst the trees. Considering how much walking everyone would have had to do to get there, AND the bugs for... More
