Largo Central Park Nature Preserve
150 Highland Ave N,
Today we travel down Highland Avenue, Southward, across East Bay Drive, all the way to the end. The end is actually the beginning of Largo Central Park Nature Preserve - a 31 acre parcel that is possibly one of the more interesting to explore in the County. At least we think so and it has become one of our favorites.



A raised boardwalk encircles the pond, the home of different kinds of turtles, fish and always the possibility of a gator or two. Take your time walking the boardwalk and watch over both sides where you are apt to see many types of birds, especially early morning breakfast times. Watch overhead in the trees as well, where the birds like to hang out after dining.

After the boardwalk take the trail that circles the park.  Climb the steps of the two-story observation tower in the Southwest corner for a bird’s eye view to the South. You may want to also visit the butterfly garden at the North end of the parking lot before you leave.

“The park is home to hundreds of wildlife species for viewing. Over 130 species of birds, otters, red fox, American alligator, marsh rabbits, wild turkey, and bats all feed or live within the park.”
