Bill Robinson, partnered with Manatee County in the late 2000s to turn then farmland into a 650+acre mosaic of mud flats, mangrove swamps + beaches into what is now the incredible Robinson Preserve! Formerly farmland in a district of Bradenton known for its tropical plant nurseries, this expanse of waterfront habitats has undergone extensive restoration. Invasive species have been removed and tidal creeks and basins recreated to be nourished by the rise and fall of Tampa Bay. Robinson Preserve is a salt marsh now home to jumping mullet and hundreds of other species of fish, dolphins, manatees, birds and other marine life.

The interior of the preserve features hiking paths, kayak and canoe waterways, bridges, picnic spots, an ancient mangrove forest undisturbed since 1886 and a
53-foot-tall tower observation tower! Climb to the top of the 5 story tower for a sweeping view of Tampa Bay, Anna Maria Island, Egmont Key, Fort DeSoto, St. Petersburg and the Sunshine Skyway a part of the epic back drop! Take advantage of all the area has to offer with a clear kayak tour, explore the miles of walking trails, roam the 120-year-old Valentine House, race through the treetops at THE NEST or head across the street for a peaceful walk through the Palma Sola Botanical Park!

The closer we get to Tampa Bay as we make our way through the mangroves and under wooden bridges the clearer the water becomes and the more frequent our wildlife sightings become! Wherever you decide to adventure in Robinson Preserve you are sure to have an amazing WILD FLORIDA experience that makes you feel like you are miles away from all the hustle and bustle!
