This 390-acre park in the heart of urbanized Pinellas County serves a dual purpose.

A mile-long elevated boardwalk winds through the swamp and oak hammock, and an observation tower at lake's edge offers an up-top view. A tour booklet available at the Anderson Environmental Center will guide you through your walk and helps you identify the wildlife. Picnicking is permitted and there is no admission fee.
