Park and Ocean Adventure Center is a short walk from beachside shops, hotels and condominiums. This park is an oasis of tropical hammocks-a gift from Hugh Taylor Birch to Florida’s posterity. His former estate preserves four distinct natural communities, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.
Visitors can rent a canoe and paddle along a mile-long freshwater lagoon or fish from the seawall. Nature lovers can hike along two short trails and learn about local plants and wildlife while bicyclists and skaters glide along the paved park road. Visitors can access the beach via the pedestrian tunnel under A1A. Picnic areas overlook the channel; pavilions with water and electricity are available for rental.
We offer a wide variety of activities you can do at the park, including kayaks,
canoes, wave runners, Segway’s, SUP paddleboards and guided tours.
