Great park for boating, fishing, golf, Picnicking or trail walking which is what i like best. Lots of deer along trails. Nice wave pool if your into that also. Nice little nature center too.

No crowd and the team could just spend peaceful time fishing, boating etc. Different fun than the summer time. It is quite peaceful and not quite cold out yet. So excellent time if you like it.

A real treat for this southern boy born in Texas and raised in south Florida. My two middle sons and I took a long hike through the park, starting at the pedestrian/bike entrance on S. Gibraltar Rd. No entrance fee this way. Sweet! The walk...More

I'm an armature. Birder and can't say enough about identifying and adding to my life list. A beautiful park to enjoy trails, nature, sun and fun!
