Sirenia Vista Park is an 8.4-acre environmental park located in Northwest Cape Coral, where visitors can see manatees. From November to March, manatees use Sirenia Vista Park as a winter haven to live, feed, and raise their young along the Bows Canal. This park is also home to other native wildlife, including an impressive variety of birds, making it the perfect place to take your binoculars and bird identification guide for some relaxing bird watching. Visitors can also kayak or canoe through the nearby mangrove forest to take in the scenery or even fish. Pack a picnic and spend the day at Sirenia Vista Park with family, friends, and even your dog!
Yacht Club Community Park is located on the shore of the Caloosahatchee River. Built in the 1950s, the Yacht Club is one of Cape Coral’s original landmarks and one of the most popular tourist attractions. The park offers a public beach, community pool, and a fishing pier. The Yacht Club hosts the “Sunset Celebration,” which takes place the first Wednesday of every month from October through April. This event features 40-50 local art vendors, live music, and food trucks with a scenic backdrop of the Florida sunset over the river.
Rotary Park spans an impressive 97 acres that includes a variety of landscapes like salt marshes, upland, and ground level rock. Visitors can take it all in from walking trails, boardwalks, and open parks. There is even a dog park for you and your pup to run and play. Located within the park, the Tom Allen Memorial Butterfly House is home to native butterflies. This butterfly house is important to Florida’s ecosystem by protecting the butterflies while they transform from eggs to adults. When the butterflies are released, they pollinate the surrounding plants to keep Florida’s flora and fauna healthy. Visitors can take free tours of the butterfly house every Monday, Friday, and Saturday at 10:30 AM to learn more about the various butterfly species.
