Made the mistake of choosing this park as a stop on our way back from Key West to Miami. After 15 minutes of walking we realized that this once upon a time must have been nice. It reminded me of a large backyard that lost...More

It is a good place to go if you are just looking for a trail to hike. We couldn't do the whole trail since a section of it was covered by water.

I never saw anything like this under name "Botanical Garden". Even with a free parking and just $2.5 fee you put in envelop and leave in a special box. Wild thickets with a series of posts. Absolute desolation and a sense of hopelessness.

Not much to see here but wad a relaxing time spent walking and looking at the trees of Florida. This is a self guided tour so you can go as fast or slow as desired

This is not really a "park" but was a failed development, so there is an asphalt loop that you can walk around. There are some signs on the trees, but many have nothing. It's a pleasant walk, about 1 mile for the half loop, and...More

This park is run down and in a state of disrepair. The paved part of the trail is paved in a checkerboard fashion, as its original purpose was abandoned. It was originally purchased by a Japanese investor that wanted to turn the land into a...More

My mom and I walked the long loop at the park which is free right now. It was beautiful and very quiet.

There is a one mile loop and a 2 mile loop. The full loop is sometimes partially under water. As far as level goes, well, this is the keys, so its flat. This park is taken care of by John Pennekamp State Park, so you have to... More
