It's a small municipal park on the Great Florida Birding Trail. The birding is okay but definitely not getting why it's elevated to that level. There is a tiny bit of - I hesitate to call it forest but I suppose it is - and there is exposed area on boardwalk going over mangrove swamp. The whole place seems vaguely dirty somehow.
Off putting - read "experience" section.
As far as birding goes: C+. There were some warblers etc in the mini-forest but it wasn't really remarkable. It was in general an unpleasant experience because of some odd qualities this place had: 1 - there was a lot of garbage around including more rubber gloves - we see so much of this - is it a new drug thing? 2 - The pond has a very unnecessary "no swimming" sign. It is a sickly yellow opaque soup that nothing above microbes seemed to be surviving. There are a couple gates in the park so people in condos can get in but keeping you out of their space - it's off putting to be enjoying a little forest and to be confronted with non-nature and a "keep out". 3 - There's literally a nature education sign explaining the german cockroach... an invasive species that it universally despised. Maybe soon they'll get another for the beloved maggot. Plus it's an expensive color printed sign. Also there's a similar sign for pelicans in the middle of the forest - why not put it by the water on the other side of the park? We waited 30 minutes to see a pelican walk through the forest and no dice.
