Shepard's Park, Stuart
Print Leave a comment
Shepard's Park in Stuart has a lovely location right on the intercoastal waterway. Here, a boardwalk over the water amongst the mangrove plants has pretty views of the bridge curving over liquid blue. At sunset you can sit on a bench and watch the peachy colors over the water. There are plenty of picnic tables under large trees, and a playground under tall coconut trees. White sand makes the playground area a fun place to dig and play. There are swings too. Near the playground you can walk over to the canal and watch the fishermen zooming by.
For a lovely park with a splash pad, river beach, and children's museum, check out Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach. Another nice park is Sandsprit Park, with a playground and water views of myriad shades of blue and green.
