“showcases native Florida wildlife”

Visitors can see West Indian manatees every day of the year from the park's underwater observatory in the main spring. The park showcases native Florida wildlife, including manatees, black bears, bobcats, white-tailed deer, American alligators, American crocodiles, and river otters. Manatee programs are offered three times daily. At the Wildlife Encounter programs, snakes and other native animals are featured. Recreational opportunities include picnicking, nature study, and bird-watching. The park features a children's education center, providing hands-on experiences about Florida's environment. Transportation from the visitor center on U.S. 19 to the West Entrance is available by tram or boat. The park has two concessionaire-operated gift shops and a concessionaire-operated café with a selection of beverages and snacks. Plan 3 1/2 to 4 hours to tour the park. Check the Ranger Programs for a list of interactive events throughout the park each day.

I had a huge family reunion a couple years ago and went to this park with everyone after Christmas. It's gorgeous. We loved walking around and working off all the Christmas food. And the animals are super friendly.

Really enjoyable experience, with loads of great birds, manatees, bear, hippo, large cats and exotics, in a well laid out park.

Really enjoyed this park. The animals are nearly all rescues and the workers are volunteers. Everyone is happy to be there.
