It's a scenic overlook that seems like it belongs in the appalacian foothills, not Florida... well at least to someone who's been in Florida a long time. I think it's quite beautiful. Just a little foot bridge and path - not much too it.
You're looking at a forest so there are birds but you're far enough away that you're not terribly likely to really see any very well. You can go down the the ground level etc but since you aren't walking miles of trails again they should be around but doubtfuly you'll happen to seem much. Lake Apopka (birds like it) is close but not THAT close.
Again - I'm sure there's wildlife but you'd be lucky to see it from this vantage - the trees are too thick to see far. Unless there are bigfoot hopping between treetops here... then you're going to see plenty.
Bathroom and picnic area - it seems very well taken care of.
Lovely park =)
2 minute walk - you'll likely stay 15-20 minutes for the view, more if you walk down to the ground.
If you were driving around most US states this scenic overlook wouldn't be very interesting but considering it's in Florida it can be pretty special - we like to stop here quite a bit. It almost feels like you're looking over a short Appalachian mountain's vantage of tall trees nearly as far as the eye can see. There is not much too it - look down 2 stories to the ground, look out to the trees, plus a nice trail down to the ground level. It's a nicely taken care of place and the drive around the area - the west side of lake Apopka can be gorgeous if you take the right roads.
