There are two fun dog parks, ball parks and paths for walkers and runners. The park is always clean and a lot of fun!

Love Okeeheelee Park, great place to go a relax, walk, run or join any sport activity. Hubby love to go to play golf, my kids love to go to the nature reserve center. Great place to visit.

I have been visiting the park almost daily because of my rollerblading. There is also great outdoor picnic areas with grills, just bring the food and briquets!

lovey place to go for a walk, even in a rainstorm! not very big so mot much danger of getting lost, easy to follow trails. I have walked here a few time but on my last trip with my fiancée we had an amazing (and slightly scary) experience. We were sheltering under a tree during a brief downpour and about 50 meters away a stunning Panther popped out of the bushes, stared at us for a few seconds and then dashed off again. We spoke with some people who work at the nature centre there and they confirmed they had also recently sighted a big cat which they believed to be a Panther - How cool is that?! We also saw a few Turtles and some interesting birds. Don't expect hours of adventure but perfect for an afternoon stroll.

We met with friends who live in the neighborhood. Four families, each bringing a couple of dishes to share. Fortunately for us, we arrived early enough and found a place to spread out. There was plenty of room for the children to play.
