“Great park and center”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

I agree I don't like seeing cages but these hurt birds are doing great. The park is very clean and a great place to watch the boats and see the sunset. They also have a fishing area, boat launch and a nice nature trail. They even have a little sand beach area.

“Great Sunsets”
Reviewed 24 November 2010

We stumbled on PDL park while we were in Punta Gorda shopping for winter accomodations. It's close to (our new) home, and has a great little beach. Being animal lovers, the thought of a wildlife center turned our stomachs in much the same way that zoos do, until I read their site and discovered that they rehabilitate wildlife and only keep animals that are unable to be returned to the wild. Bravo.
If you're in Punta Gorda, I highly recommend catching a sunset here.
