LOCATION: Accuracy: Read me
Lots of garden / planted-plants and side walks around the planted plants. Lots of gift shop, restaurant, and go carts. A tower. A few short paved trails. There's a birdwatching blind but I've never seen birds there. That's really about it.
I think I saw a cardinal, blue jay, a kestrel, and a mocking bird.
Koi pond, a garden snake, and a squirel. That is all.
This place is 99% amenities. Restaurant, museum of sorts, 2 docents/guides for every visitor. It feels like a scientology center.
No secrets - look it up on your phone.
This place is an industry - I don't think they'd read that letter.
It's a bit of a walk to get to the tower. You'll probably spend an hour or so all told.
This place is basically a little pretty park on a little hill with a tacky ornate tower on it. You can't enter the tower but you can feed some koi fish surrounding it. A women's magazine magnate built the thing in the 1920s from his mound of money. My guess is he built it to attract other rich people to visit his little piece of rural Florida before malaria was quiet beaten here. They try really hard to give the place a purpose - that it was for other people (not sure how that worked), or that he was great (all he seemed to do was swim in money and write other rich people), and that it was a bird and wildlife sanctuary. I've seen many more birds and wildlife in my urban yard which I also call a bird and wildlife sanctuary.
