We were at this park in the spring of this year, when things were just beginning to look decent. There isn't much there except a wooden walkway, which is uncrowded and unspoiled. There is a pavilion toward the end of the walk, but it isn't...More

James Grey is a hidden gem. Usually pretty quiet there. Gorgeous walk through nature, by the river. Also a small launch for canoes and kayaks.

Great morning to take a stroll on the boardwalk. Very peaceful and calming. We saw a manatee, ducks, turtles, and many squirrels. Nice park for younger kids and bathrooms were clean.

A beautiful morning to stroll through this "new to us" experience. Difficult to decide where to start, we just park our car and begin to walk. The trail was filled with lush vegetation and geckos in plenty. Our trail ended with a nice covered dock...More

The hidden jewel in the city, but it might as well be Shangri-La. I suggest you bring a kayak because the trip down the Cotee into the gulf is a bucket list item for sure.

An easy boardwalk along the natural river bank gives glimpses of wildlife and flora. A large area away from the river has been developed for recreation and picnics. The very rough access road gets you in the mood for nature.

We have seen manatee, dolphin, and alligator. The Cote river is navigable from the Gulf of Mexico to the Preserve so you might see all kinds of sea life.

I went down there today. Great LITTLE place but dogs are not allowed. Boardwalk is very shady and nice.
