This park is beautiful and fun and easy to walk. You can watch people fishing and many people stop to say hi and ask how your day is going. Very friendly people. Great place to exercise and enjoy the florida sun.

No animals allowed except service dogs. The grassy areas are rest spots for young and old and none of them would enjoy an environment filled with dog excrement.
