The 4 of us went here December 23. I have, to date, never seen so many birds /ducks in one place! Delightful walk around the large pond. Bird and duck heaven. We saw signs about not feeding the alligators but thought it was a joke...More

We usually cycle around the pond on the roads, but it looked so nice, I decided to walk the trail. It is a nice easy walk, probably about one mile total. There is lots of wildlife, eagles, alligators etc. so walk and watch.

Nice place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery. We found a few geocaches here too which made it a plus.
