Very pretty scenic park. Lots to do - picnicking, camping, dog friendly, nature trails, volleyball nets, canoe rentals, SUP rentals. A lot of happenings every weekend here listed on the website. A very safe feeling as there are a lot of rangers driving around; and maintenance crew clearing pathways, trimming, etc. access to A1A to FTL beach via tunnel - $2pp to enter park or $6 p/car to park inside park and hike to beach and other areas.

Went here today for the first time with my cousin. We both loved it!! Really nice, easy trails. Beautiful trees and plants- so much green.

Taking a look at their bulletin board, they also have a ton of events, definitely recommend looking into that to make your visit extra special. Just a great place, definitely one of the best nature centers I've been to in South Flori
