Lots of laughs and learning - We learned so much about bird species and just awe inspiring experiences walking the Willow Trail on elevated platform and Shoveler Pond. Didnt expect the alligators we saw but that was added bonus. East Unit was closed and so was visitor center due to Covid. It was sad but allowed us to spend so much more time on the other two places. Its a place everyone should make time for. Mosquito repellent and water a must.
- SOME 15 YRS AGO IT WAS BEAUTIFUL REMEMBER DEER ON THE RD. WHILE I WAS WALKING ALLIGATORS IN A FENCED POND THE FENCE WAS BROKEN OFF I WAS AFRAID THEY COME OUT I WAS OK ....PLAN TO GO VISIT AGAIN SOON ITS BEAUTIFUL
First Time Visitor - Site looked has if no maintenance had been provided in months. Johnson Grass three feet high, grass burs everywhere, sidewalks not edged. As a retired State Employee I was shocked by the condition of this supposedly sacred ground.
W.G. Jones Park Under Threat - A recent state bill was introduced to allow bulldozing of areas of the W.G. Jones Park for commercial buildings. SB 1964 was recently sponsored by Sen Creighton. It would effectively destroy this park.
First time visitor - This park is lovely. Having a level spot is essential in my van. Lots of shade, electricity, water, fire rings, picnic tables and showers in the bath! What more could you want. Entrance and 2 nights = $52.00
