Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park

Blooming season at Maclay Gardens

In late winter, azaleas create ribbons of bright color beneath the live oak canopy across the grounds of Maclay Gardens, a series of formal gardens along the hillsides sweeping down to Lake Hall.

Alligator Creek

CHEC Alligator Creek

Located where freshwater and saltwater habitats meet along the edge of Charlotte Harbor, the Alligator Creek unit of Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park in Punta Gorda is an outreach center and living laboratory of the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center. Here, the stir of a salt breeze riffles across cypress domes close to the sea.
