James Grey is a hidden gem. Usually pretty quiet there. Gorgeous walk through nature, by the river. Also a small launch for canoes and kayaks.

Great morning to take a stroll on the boardwalk. Very peaceful and calming. We saw a manatee, ducks, turtles, and many squirrels. Nice park for younger kids and bathrooms were clean.

The hidden jewel in the city, but it might as well be Shangri-La. I suggest you bring a kayak because the trip down the Cotee into the gulf is a bucket list item for sure.

An easy boardwalk along the natural river bank gives glimpses of wildlife and flora. A large area away from the river has been developed for recreation and picnics. The very rough access road gets you in the mood for nature.

Very nice park that most of it is walking on a wooden pier. It's like your walking in a swamp jungle but is elevated. Very peaceful and easy walk. This is located on a residential rode and is located at the end.

We have seen manatee, dolphin, and alligator. The Cote river is navigable from the Gulf of Mexico to the Preserve so you might see all kinds of sea life.

I went down there today. Great LITTLE place but dogs are not allowed. Boardwalk is very shady and nice.
