Excellent and well kept NATURE TRAIL in the heart of Niceville.. Excellent for walking, jogging, bathing/wading cool and clean Turkey Creek. Beautiful boardwalk trail with hundreds of local wildlife to observe.

Long, winding boardwalk perfect for leisurely stroll or great place to exercise. Nature abounds in this natural setting which follows Turkey Creek. Sometimes you'll see wildlife or a friendly new face. Perfect for kids, families or couples.

This is one place for everyone. You get to walk through Florida nature. We love it. You can see turtles in the water. Walk down to the end and raft back up. A number of places to swim. There is a place dedicated to lost children.

This is a great place to just wander along a beautiful wood walkway and be a part of nature or take a swim or just meditate. It is very nicely maintained and can be accessed by walking or by wheel chair.

This boardwalk now extends all the way from 85 to College Drive with a canoe launch at the north end and a platform near the south end to haul out (but a bit of a carry back to take parking lot). Great for a fresh water swim in a Florida creek, you can float, kayak or canoe, or just dip... More

We stopped here as side trip on our way home from a beach vacation. It is such a well done and BEAUTIFUL park! Lots of things to see if you love the outdoors at all. Wishes we had discovered it sooner as we could have spent much more time there. A must see and we'll be back for sure!

This is a beautiful long nature trail which is on boardwalk but you are able to view trees, creek, turtles, birds and relax. It is only 1.8 mile. There is also a little memorial site along the path and an area with picnic tables at the front of the trail. There are places for people to go in the water... More
