Visited early in morning. (Opens after 10am) Peacocks x 2, Bald Eagle a Black Vulture and a (Red Tailed?) Hawk. Wild Alligator sunning on sand-bar in lake seen off of wooden wharf/pier. Place is being totally re-furbished, but worth a visit for an early morning walk and a coffee. A few turtles in pond(s), but not Busch Gardens or Lowry... More

My wife and I stumbled across this little park while exploring clearwater after Sunday brunch. What a great surprise! This municipal park is free to the public and is tucked away in a residential area. The have lots of tree/Moss covered trails, but the highlight is the bird displays. They have a dozen or so native birds of prey on... More

We really enjoy this park; bird watching, sighting alligators and a small aviary. It is a real gem and an easy walk. Wheelchair accessible paths.

This is a good local park showcasing some native owls, snakes, and other wildlife that can be found in the area. There are some nice educational exhibits and a rustic walking trail from the nature center out to Moccasin Lake.

First time here. Really a great park. It's a rehabilitation center also. Learned alot from the staff. Enjoyed the company of three very special owls that they take care of their and one red shouldered hawk. Very peaceful walk. Admission is free but donate a few bucks to help out this great park. Recommend for anyone.

Most under rated park of all time. I love this place!! They take care of birds that have disabilities. They have owls, bald eagles, a vulture and others. It's pretty incredible. Also have a nice loop trail that takes you by a lake. Great upkeep & great people. I recommend this to anyone in the Clearwater area.

The park has many injured birds that are handled by a well informed staff. The grounds are a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Don't forget your camera and a good pair of walking shoes. There is however, a bridge that is out and it has been for sometime. This kind of limits the direction of your walk. The city... More

It was a quite weekday when we went. It had a couple of displays that were empty and part of the trail was closed due to water damage but all in all a nice way to spend an afternoon. Saw an 8 to 10 foot gator in the lake. Needless to say, no swimming.

Was closed the first time we visited. Only opened from Thursday to Sunday so we returned recently. Some small animals and one trail around property going out to small lake. Most of this place seems run down and in need of updating, even rest rooms. Not bad but we expected more. Interested hard working staff. Saw more wildlife walking around... More
