One of the gems of the Palm Bay Parks system is the Turkey Creek Sanctuary and the Margaret Hames Nature Center. Located behind the Community Center and next to the Palm Bay Library at 1502 Port Malabar Blvd. NE, the Sanctuary is over 100 acres of natural Florida along the banks of Turkey Creek. There are jogging paths and a great boardwalk through the woods, with informational signs for wildlife and plants found in the Park. There are manatees, alligators and Florida cooters (turtles) in the creek, and you might see an otter or a gar fish. Birds abound in the old pine canopy, including ospreys and owls. Managed by the city of Palm Bay.
