Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Confusing signage and after driving round to the car park there was a sign saying the boardwalk and the park were closed (due to construction I think)
This isn't mentioned on the website!

We walked up the tower for a good view and saw some manatees in the water below.

Nice if you're nearby.

They were too far to see much more. This place was not on the schedule. Glad we ran into it even though it was raining. I really don’t understand why I have 105 drafts on trip advisor like this one from a few years ago

Went kayaking and saw several mantee. Beautiful water ways with several little cove areas. Water was calm and clear. Good and easy kayak launching area . Enjoyed some fishing on the docks across the road. Lots of bites

This small park has attributes that can appeal to folks with many different interests. For us it was an opportunity to see manatees.

This was a seasonal sighting and being at the park at the beginning of January we knew there was a good chance of seeing manatees and so it proved. There were around 20 of them in the waterway close to the viewing tower and the road bridge over the waterway. Note parking at this park is free, just across the road at Jenkins Creek they are charging $10 flat rate to park though from what I saw, no-one was bothering to pay!

During the week in Feb. when I was visiting the area, I had a chance to walk down the road and over to the park. We were looking for the manatees who, when it is chilly out, come to hang out in the waters of the park. Alas, not a one on the day we had walked over. It is one of many places in the area to get a good walk in and to also view pretty scenery.

Just happened to stop at this little park as my husband and i were scouting out areas to fish. There are lovely docks to fish from here and at the neighboring Jenkins Creek Park. (across the road). There are picnic tables, an observation tower and boardwalk along the canal (Jenkins creek) along with bathroom facilities.
Best of all, there were also manatees warming up in the creek along one of the boardwalks! What a lovely surprise that was!!
Well worth the stop!!

Looked one a nice place for a walk with our pups. No where on the website or in the review does it mention no dogs.
Big signs everywhere No Dogs Allowed.

This park is a hotspot for the locals try to fish for mullet and whatnot. I'm not big on fishing, I was out for the more visually appeally aspect of this park. The tower is interesting if one desires a better view of the surroundings. The little beach area in the back is quaint but fun and includes a little playground for the children. The manatee frequented though the weather was rather cold recently so I believe they were migrating to and from the little "hidden" gem of a spring. There are many paths for walking and/or finding that ideal area from the bank to cast a line. There's also a kayak launch for those preferring to take to the water. It's pretty dense and the no-see-em's can be all teeth so I'd suggest some kind of fly repellent. Also there are no vending machines or concession stands so if you're going to make a day of it bring supplies.
