Aquarium tanks throughout the nature center house a Diamondback Terrapin that swims in the ocean and walks on land. A touch tank, and a quarantine tank that holds small turtles. An Oyster Toadfish, a Banded Tulip Snail in one tank and Crabs in another. The bones of a Bottlenose Dolphin and the West Indian Manatee in the display case.

Walk along the boardwalk to the Indian River Lagoon and admire the native plants of Riverwalk Park. Sit on a bench, relax, and listen to the songbirds. Stop at each plaque and read a description of the different birds found in the lagoon. Feel the breeze as you reach the lagoon, stop and watch the waves as they break on the shore. Watch a speedboat racing across the lagoon or a sailboat slowing sailing across the lagoon. I recommend the park admission is free. An informative and relaxing way to spend the day.
