Very well maintained park with something for everyone. Open fields, walking trails, and a boat ramp on Lake Tarpon. A nice place to relax and enjoy nature. There are picnic tables, barbeque and pavillions.

Great park for picnics, kid's birthday parties, events. Lots of nature around. If you don't see a gator, you're not looking very hard. Decent boat launch, good parking but only goes into Lake Tarpon.
