A great place to visit for long casual nature walks. When our children where younger we often enrolled them in their hands on nature summer programs. Have been here to take family pictures as well.

Boyd Hill Nature Preserve is an excellent city owned facility with educational displays, a bird of prey aviary, and ranger led tours by tram or on foot. An excellent view of Florida ecosystems
