Jim D says:
Spent a few hours in the park before our flight home. Hard to believe this green spot right in the middle of the city. The Banyan trees are worth the trip by themselves. But the views along the Inland Waterway are also beautiful, not only for the homes but also the boats. Take a lunch and sit at one of the benches along the water. Lots of picture sites throughout the park. Small charge for admission one well worth it.
They are back in business!
The hurricanes in Sept/Oct really gave the park a punch and parts were closed. But they are back to normal. Everything is open (including the restaurant). So picnic (yes grilling is allowed) your hearts out. As usual, bring bug spray and suntan lotion. Dogs on leash permitted. Watch out for the bikes and roller blades, they tend to forget there are young children about only inches from them. Same goes for a few inconsiderate drivers. Just be aware you are sharing the one road in, one road out with traffic. For the most part, everyone is good with watching out, but there’s always someone…. blah, blah. There are picnic areas away from the crowds, just have to look for them. Clean, beautiful, tranquil place to spend an entire day or afternoon.
We arrived by bicycle and paid a $2 per person entrance fee. We rode the entire park 3 times as it is not large, one continuous loop to get around on a flat blacktopped road. You can rent kayaks there to use only a little sliver of the intercoastal, jet skis are rented across the street on the beach. There was a good-sized building with bathrooms, a gift shop, and a restaurant. It is very green and lush, a relaxed environment in a hectic city. They have some great programs, but unfortunately none of the nights we were in town.
We stayed at a beach hotel on A1A for four nights. Because of cool temperatures and high winds, we didn’t spend much time on the beach. The walking trails at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park were a welcome alternative to beach walking. There is a paved two-mile loop around the park with nature trails branching off the paved road.

With a $6 entrance, you also get access to the beach! The trails in this park are beautiful and the park is always well kept. There is a variety of plants, and information on different trees, as well. There is serene and magical energy all around this park.
