That is exactly what we did this morning. Since there has been so much rain lately, we wanted to get out but did not want to deal with puddles, so we chose a drive to the park to walk the boardwalks.
Since it was already close to 9 am by the time we got there, the deer were already in hiding. You have to be there early, when the park opens, to see the dozen or so deer that call John Chesnut Park their home.
It seems mama gator has set up her nest once again this year in the same location as last year and the park rangers have fencing and signage up once again.
If you live in the Palm Harbor Florida area or are considering relocating here, be sure to check out all of the possibilities for outdoor adventures offered by John Chesnut Park, from hiking, biking, boating (yes, fantastic boat ramps on Lake Tarpon), an enormous doggie park, volleyball court, picnic and grilling facilities, restrooms and the list goes on! This is the place to be to enjoy Florida's great outdoors!!
