We stopped here and thoroughly enjoyed the education center with its animal displays and information about the area. The different paths that you could take were interesting. We especially liked the path to the lookout tower. We took the 41steps up and were above the...More

Of course, all visitors to Sanibel should spend lots of time in Ding Darling, but don't neglect the 'other side' of Sanibel ecology/wildlife. In addition to raising funds to protect various portions of the inland landscape, the Conservation Foundation maintains a highly informative nature center...More

Great place for a walk, to see the wildlife and the different trees and fauna. The park was well laid out and had lots of informative plaques. The price was free, which helps out, because Sanibel is a little expensive.

Went for a walk there. Some trails were closed. Climbed the observation tower. What a view. Didn't see much as we walked, animals hid. Good place to visit.

Entry by donation, but give them some $! Good inside educational displays. Lots of trails, but wear boots in wet times and take bug repellent!

Sanibel has a very varied landscape in spite of the fact that it is a small island--about 13 miles by 2 miles. The Gulf and Bay beaches are fascinating as is the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge but to get a complete picture, a visit to...More
