Bradenton – If your family is looking for something adventurous and would enjoy a bike-ride on newly-paved trails, a walk along the nature paths, kayaking through the paddle trails, a climb up an Observation Tower or would just prefer to enjoy the wildlife, then Robinson Preserve is the perfect way to entertain the whole family!
The Robinson Preserve is located in Northwest Bradenton, about a 10-15 min drive off Anna Maria Island. Open year-round, Hours: Sunrise to Sunset. Free Admission and parking. Tours only by request and usually last about 2 hours. Make an appointment by calling ahead of time.
Bring your bathing suit if you would like to go for a swim. The Preserve also has plenty of picnic tables across from the Visitor Center to have a meal or a little snack. Make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen as it can be very hot, especially during summer!!
Are you bringing your dog on vacation? Bring them to Robinson Preserve! Just make sure that you bring a leash and plenty of water!
There are several companies offering services to rent kayaks at Robinson’s preserve. They will deliver the rental kayaks at predetermined times so you can enjoy a kayak around the preserve. Great fun!
