Much of the 7,000 acres lie within one of the largest mangrove swamps in the world. It also is home to one of the three original stands of rare royal palm in Florida. The park extends down to the Ten Thousand Islands and includes mangrove river estuaries and salt marsh preserves that are favorite habitats for wading birds. Kayak/canoe expeditions are the best way to see the wealth of flora and fauna. A unique array of plants await to be discovered such as exotic agave and fire brush which scream with color. Travel on your own or take an organized tour. Or walk one of the self-guided trails, which feature a boardwalk system and observation platforms. Enjoy the Visitor’s Center with exhibits, camping, and examining the site of a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark, the Bay City walking Dredge which was built in 1924 to create the Tamiami Highway.
