This is an awesome park. Great trails for walking and a huge tower you can take the steps to the top of and see for miles. This park is also one of the best spots to go kayaking. Easy kayak launching and rack to rinse off when done. Check it out!

A safe and fun hike to enjoy natural Florida habitat. One trip around is a 5k. Bathrooms at entrance. Take a water bottle to drink from on the way.

We are birders and bikers and have gone to and enjoyed Robinson Preserve many times. Besides being a great place just to walk and get away, there is the additional exhilarating feeling that because the Preserve and other preserves are being expanded (neighboring Perico Preserve just opened in the last year or so), future generations are going to be able...

We stopped by the preserve and did a very nice 3 mile walk. I liked that there were bathroom facilities, but no food. Actually, the water fountain was broken. I'm not sure really what we were supposed to see on our walk. We saw a lot of brush.

We had a really great time here, beautiful lake for kayaking and great trails for bike riding. We found a "beach" the kids took their shoes off and waddled in it we also saw dolphins which was a real treat. Nice views from the tower

We love this preserve and they are just about ready to open the recent renaturalized area. The main trail takes just under one hour to walk in a loop.

The Robinson is already a terrific place for communing with nature - either by bike, kayak, or on foot - with miles of paths and waterways for wildlife observation. And it is very excited that a major expansion of preserved land (with more trails) is underway. We enjoyed both some of the walking paths and a wonderfully long bike ride... More

We discovered this reserve through Trip Advisor so we walked the grounds during our visit to Bradenton. It is just a gorgeous area to walk and discover wildlife. We did not realize that you could kayak, but they do rent kayaks and would be an absolute beautiful place to do just that. I collect postcards for places I visit and... More

This is a great place to walk, bike ride and kayak with the whole family. Dogs on leashes are welcome, too.

Great place for nature walks and biking. There are lots of natural tidewater ponds within the property and you will see many different birds each season. Recently I saw white pelicans, ospreys and a rosette spoonbill among many other birds. It can get quite busy during the weekends in the winter, but being such a large property that will soon...
