We would love for you to join us as we celebrate National Family Fun Month! Along with the Friends of Oleta River State Park and the Oleta Trail Blazers, we will be hosting a family event and shore clean up. Parents bring your kids to enjoy family fun time together! We will help keep the park beautiful by cleaning up the shore line for one hour and then you and your family can explore the park and ride the trails! Come out and experience the real Florida in one of the largest urban parks in the country! Please inform the Ranger Station that you are attending the family fun day event for directions to the Manatee Pavilion where the event will be held.
