A sanctuary for injured birds, we got lucky and saw several owls and an eagle who were being rehabbed. The board walk to the intercostal waters was relaxing.

This is a great park for watching turtles and birds that are kept there. We liked listening to the volunteers who talk about the birds. Visiting the park is free. It is great to walk out to the inland waterway and watch the boats.

What a fabulous park. We loved the turtles. It would be fabulous for kids too. They have wonderful rubber matted walkways, a boardwalk out onto the water, a fabulous place set for the kids and the adorable turtles!
