So we've been thinking about this one for a long time, and we finally made it out here. It's not too far from the W.P. Franklin Locks or Manatee Park, so swing out to check this place out if you're in that area.
It's one of the largest public parks with hiking trails in the area, with easily 5 miles of trails. The grounds are well-kept and there is a lot to see!
We went in the dry season, so the bugs weren't bad and it wasn't muddy. If you go at the right time of day, you practically have the whole place to yourself!
This is definitely some Florida nature!

This place has farm animals, tractor rides (seasonally), fresh produce, vendors, a farmer's market, and a whole lot more! It's a great place for school field trips, family outings, and just getting out of the house for a few minutes.
Get out there, get some fresh air, and see what you can find!
