Definitely a must see for anyone visiting from out of town! They’ve got water activities, playgrounds, a nice loop around the park for hiking or biking, docks to view animal life like turtles and alligators. A great place to be if you love the outdoors!

Beautiful, peaceful, easy ride around the lake. Lots of good smells from the trees. Well maintained bridges to stop off at. Enjoyed very much!

My husband and I enjoy biking in dedicated bike trails but also through neighborhoods. Actually, that would be me because I love to oogle at nice homes and he just indulges me ;). This park delivers on both counts. It's a nice run of about...More

Rent a boat and see the park. Pretty fun to explore the lake and take great pictures of wildlife. Not overcrowded and tranquil.

You wouldn't believe it if I told you. You know how signs say beware of alligators and don't feed the wildlife well....when they say alligators they meant ALLIGATORS. We saw at least a 12 ft alligator with a jaw to the rival those you see...More

My experience is that you can see from the general admission seats. That is the way we always go. It's an small amphitheater so you car close no matter where you sit. Get there early for best seats. We bring a picnic to... More
