About Us:

Bill Sadowski Park and Nature Center offers three distinct habitats within thirty acres; pineland, tropical hardwood hammock, and a drained Everglades slough.  The main building houses a live animal exhibit of native freshwater fish, arthropods, reptiles and amphibians, including a newly dedicated 822-gallon freshwater aquarium.  A nature trail leads visitors through various plant communities to a canal where canoeing and fishing are available.  Solution holes and Karst limestone formations are visible along the way.  Encompassed within the park grounds are also a native tree arboretum, and a bird watching area.

Went out and ran into some cub scouts having a ceremony. Very pleasant to watch.

It's the nicest place to go with your family to fish, hike, and picnic in. They have well maintained trails with very diverse flora and the bordering canal is full of peacock bass too! The visitor center has aquariums full of fish and reptiles, and the staff is easy to get along with. On saturday nights, there is a star watch group that brings there telescopes and allow guests to look at stars, nebulas, planets, galaxies and more!

Nice quiet place to enjoy a picnic and a few short trails and has clean restrooms and friendly knowledgeable staff. Canoe rental allows you to be able to canoe up to Coral Reef Park (about 45 min) and have picnic and use the rest room before coming back to Bill Sadowski. It's feels peaceful. The downside is, no camping. However, worth visiting!
