Typical view [?]
NOTE: Ambivalent about this
NOTE: They mow it with a tractor it looks like.

There are a lot of birds here but it's a pond with a chainlink barbed wire fence around it next to a park. Not pleasant but again - birds. On the Great Florida Birding Trail.
We saw blue birds and a few warblers.
A f*cking chain llink fence with barbed wire.
We got there by taking SW 75th street onto SW 41st place - that corner has a typical municipal park but if you go around the sort of bend and see some industrial buildings to the right... park on the left at and there will be a trailhead style sign if you look close.
Do people who do a park like this pay attention to criticism?
As long as you want to circle a pond. Generally I think spots like this or roadsides it's best to sit around 20 minutes and see if something shows up.
We were trying to get a lot of stops in the day we stopped here. It's on the Great Florida Birding Trail and has a good reputation bird-wise so we stopped. Wasn't the clearest thing to drive mostly because you kind of expect a park with prominant signs. Got here and we were very turned off by the nasty fence - seems like a slap in the face. I know it costs money and there are liability issues but it's a utility company - don't they beg for chances to look more green? Oh well - we almost left before noticing - hey there's a new warbler on the barbed wire. So probably worth the stop. Just don't expect to be wowed by the view.
