Come explore this gem of a park, located right in the middle of the Punta Gorda Isles residential community! This 24-acre miniature park, owned & operated by the City, is a natural conservation area for public outdoor recreation. It contains portions of all three of the primary Florida habitats: coastal, wetlands and uplands.
We will walk the ½ mile nature trail through the park, passing through the different habitats & concluding our walk at the PGI Green Thumbs portion of the Park. There you will be introduced to different gardens by the volunteers who maintain them. These gardens include: butterfly, herb, spice & edibles, hummingbird, rock & wetland. This area has become a place of beauty, tranquility & education for our citizenry and visitors.
Bob Bechtold will lead the nature walk through the park. Bob has been a resident of PGI for six years, and is a Master Gardener and a Master Naturalist.
The entire tour is expected to last 2 hours. The walking areas are natural surfaces and level. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and footwear, and bring water and sunscreen.
