George C. McGough Nature Park


This park is also known as "the turtle park" for its abundant aquatic turtle population. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and stroll through the shady oak hammock or through the mangroves along the intracoastal waterway. Make sure you visit the nature center which houses live animal exhibits and hands-on activities for children. The park also offers several environmental education programs.
