You can launch a kayak into Howard Creek, which leads to the Upper Lake in Myakka River State Park. Myakka River State Park with 37,000 acres of natural Florida vegetation is situated adjacent to MVR. The park contains miles of hiking trails, two lakes, and a wild & scenic river. It is typical to see native wildlife species: Turkeys, gopher tortoises, alligators, armadillos, fox, deer, otter, and even an occasional bald eagle. Rest easy knowing that there is a fully manned fire station right at the entrance of the neighborhood! Bonus: Fiber Optic internet is available in the neighborhood for all your work-at-home needs.
