A lovely and serene environment rich with wildlife, flora, and fauna. Many great photo opps, and tranquility. I even saw some birds who become somewhat pink from what they eat, so I was told. Revisits are certain to yield new sights and sounds. Now that the sun blazes most of the time I'm eager to go back.

This is a nice place for couples to go on a Sunday morning and just take a stroll around the bridge. It takes you over the Hillsb. River and to a bird watching tower. It is cool in the mornings with the tree cover. You forget you are even in Tampa when you see so much wildlife.
