The Naples Preserve is a hidden gem right in downtown Naples. Great for kids, this 9.5 acre preserve offers one of the best spots to view gopher turtles. Due to Southwest Florida’s warm climate these turtles are active outside of their burrows year round, although peak season for viewing them is May through August. Enjoy a stroll on the 0.4 mile boardwalk and take in all the beautiful native flora and fauna of Naples. The Hedges Family Eco-Center is on site and offers free nature talks and the Butterfly garden is a great place to see monarch butterflies year-round. Entrance to the preserve is free.
