Owner description: The Savannas Preserve State Park encompasses close to 7,000 acres of natural area. The Savannas contains the largest, most ecologically intact stretch of freshwater marsh in Southeast Florida. Our main entrance, located off of Walton Road, offers visitors a number of ways to explore the park. There, we have an Education Center (Open Thurs-Mon, 9 am to 5 pm), a Canoe Launch and several miles of trails. Most of our trails are multi-use and are open to pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians. The Park has several other entrances including one on Jensen Beach Blvd, which connects to the Main Entrance via a 5.5 mile trail, and an entrance off of Savannah Road that features the Hawk's Bluff Trail. The Park also has two remote locations: Evans Creek Canoe Launch and Miller Property. Evans Creek is located in the 8900 Block of US1 in Port St Lucie. Miller Property is located at the end of Lewis Street in Fort Pierce. This area features several miles of trails.

It certainly feels like you are the only one there! So much beautiful space to enjoy, the sky, the water, the trails, the wildlife, trees & shrubs. A very natural state park. Unhurried, no crowds, quiet....you just hear the wind blowing and the birds calling to each other. A wonderful nature center invites you in with many exhibits, pretty canoe launch area, two covered picnic areas at canoe launch. Very scenic park.

Lots of plants to see. Saw many birds and even 3 wild hogs in the distance.
You do not have to walk very far to see many things.

Great way to see Florida for it's natural beauty and undeveloped area. This was my second visit. We were hoping to kayak or canoe but due to the lack of rain and long dry spell we were unable to. The marsh is self contained. To the other reviews who complained they
could not walk the trail due to water across it...this is Mother Nature! Sometimes very wet and other times very dry. There were many many wading birds to view and we even came upon a snake on the trail! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly! It's free to stop at the visitor center. We paid $3 to drive our car to the canoe launch/parking area. Take a few minutes to stop if you are in the area!

NIce park right off Walton Road. Good for Bird Watching -- bring binoculars. The trails are flat and smooth. Safe with police patrolling the area.

Savannas State Park allows a visitor to step back in time and see this coastal area of Florida as it was years ago prior to all the development.

We did not have a lot of time to spend at the park, but we were able to take a walk on an easy, flat, sandy trail for about two hours. Parts of the trail skirt residential areas and roads, but it is still remarkably quiet. There are wildlife observation platforms and bridges that provide pleasant views. We saw other visitors on bikes, and there is a platform that allows canoe and kayak access.

During our walk, we enjoyed learning more about the characteristics of savannas and identifying the flowers, trees, plants, animals, and shrubs characteristic of the region.

A highlight for us was seeing sandhill cranes, a first we could record on our birding list.

The employees and volunteers at the visitor center, which had some displays to help hikers interpret what they would see on the trails, were pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable.

There is plenty of parking and clean restrooms.
