Nature Preserve: Birding, Hike, Picnic, Walk
Neal Preserve’s 120 acres include both coastal habitats, such as mangrove forests and salt terns, as well as pockets of oak hammock uplands. Acquired in 2005, the site features passive outdoor recreation opportunities including a 20 foot tall observation tower, shell trails, and boardwalks that wind through the coastal environment. Located on the south side of Manatee Avenue, overflow parking is available on the north side of the Anna Maria Island Bridge. Due to the sensitive nature of the habitat and nesting bird sites, pets are not allowed at Neal Preserve. Open sunrise to sunset.
