A little slice of nature just a minute from the beaches. Known as "the turtle park" for its abundant aquatic turtle population, McGough Nature Park is located at 11901 146th Street North. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and stroll through the shady oak hammock or through the mangroves along the intercoastal waterway. Make sure you visit the nature center which houses live animal exhibits and hands-on activities for children. The park offers several environmental education programs.
A great place to take the kids for a few hours. Feeding the turtles is a past time of many that visit the park. I have never seen so many turtles in one place.
