Start your visit with a leisurely pontoon boat ride down Pepper Creek to the wildlife park. Along the way you may see ospreys nesting, limpkins, herons or egrets wading in the creek, wood ducks swimming along; not to mention turtles sunning on logs, fish and maybe even an alligator or an otter. Every day a different experience awaits you.
And that’s just the beginning. Once you’ve arrived at the wildlife park, you will see that we have been busy making improvements. Along the Wildlife Walk, you will see new, enlarged habitats for Great Horned Owls, Barn Owls and Florida Barred Owls. Our Grey and Red Foxes have now moved into their newly landscaped and much larger habitats. After a busy spring season, the animals are enjoying exploring their habitats. Our elevated boardwalk system provides a great view of the wildlife including a cougar, bears, bobcats, otters, deer, alligators and a wide variety of wading birds, birds of prey and songbirds.
The park's resident manatees make the first-magnitude spring their home, along with fresh and salt water fish that are free to come and go. The Fish Bowl, a floating underwater observatory, offers an unequalled, below-the-surface view of manatees and fish in the crystal clear spring environment. Three manatee programs, two Wildlife Encounters and an alligator program are presented throughout the day, giving visitors an opportunity to learn more about the Florida's wildlife.
