It's nice to get away from the street grids and condos and wander through a wild landscape in a quiet area. That said, the paths and boardwalk are a bit rundown, and not a ton of effort has been put into guiding a visitor through...More

This is a 158 acre hammock, what Florida looked like before development. Nice urban oasis to get away from the glitz and sprawl of the Palm Beaches. There is a paved interpretative walking path, and multiple unpaved walking paths, ranging from 0.6 to 1.6 miles....More

Came to this well-kept park. Doing some Geocaching. If you don’t know what that is this may be a good place to start. Had no trouble around the park, beautiful scenery. Glad I came.

We live nearby. This is a very well kept hiking trail, easy and relatively short. The environment is pleasant and interesting even for the area native. So if you are close, definitely try it for an outdoor activity.

This is a lesser known natural area not far from the Gardens Mall. Located on Prosperity Farms Rd, north of PGA Blvd, it has parking for about 15 vehicles. Manatees can be sighted from the dock/gazebo. Natural Florida at its best.
