A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Christine Dorrier

Fall is in the air here at the Park and cooler temperatures have the fish running. The Eagles have returned and the bird watching is wonderful. If you wish to paddle in the park we recommend launching from Brasher Park (4951 Koons Road, Port Richey FL) and then paddling north into the park. Most of the walking trails have dried out, so come out and explore the Real Florida!
