When my more adventurous friends visit, I like to rent kayaks or paddle boards from the Surferbus and take them through Robinson Preserve. The relatively calm waters make it a great place for new paddle boarders and the observation tower provides a nice break. Take...More

We take visitors for casual walks trough the preserve, Very pleasant and lots of places for observations of wildlife. Paths are gravel with occasional park benches for sitting and observing. Parking lot seems adequate. Some people enjoy bicycling there.

If you need to walk run or ride a bike this is the place. A safe place with a view from the skyway to bird watching. With the time!!

I cannot recommend a place more. Each trail is absolutely beautiful, with bridges and boardwalks that are creatively designed and pretty. It's impressive how the trails weave around the mangroves and water perfectly. It's a bayou perfect for the naturalist and for canoeing and paddleboarding....More

Entry is free, the same with all the wonderful Manatee County nature preserves. I think there are canoes, too. The launch point and all the bay-sheltered waters -- and there are more waters to wear out a kid -- are fairly... More
