"A delightful surprise"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We had been kayaking on Shingle creek ( a must by the way it’s brilliant) and noticed people walking down the side of the creek under the bridge which carries the 192 overhead. On that tricky last day of holiday, when you have filled all your luggage with gifts and bargains, we decide to stop at the free car park by the creek and take that stroll down the side of shingle creek. It’s a lovely stroll on concrete paths, over wooden slatted bridges, by lakes (naturally it’s Florida after all) where we watched an Osprey try repeatedly to catch his dinner, unsuccessfully alas. About a mile and a half ,at a guess , down the path we came across the Pioneer village a lovely quiet re-creation of dwellings from a bygone age . Take the time to stroll around , get out the car and take a breath, you’ll be surprised and delighted,with the other side of Florida

A lovely place to visit after the bustle of other attractions and Black Friday. A large number of houses arc from the old pioneering days and knowledgeable staff.

It was very interesting to be such a short distance off a very well traveled road in the area but yet feel like you were in the middle of the country. It lets you in on some of the pioneering families of Osceola County as well as have hiking trails and a kayak paddling trail. There is a small playground for kids and picnic facilities as well. A definite hidden gem of the area.

"An Alternative to the Parks and Attractions"

We first visited about 20 years ago and this little gem has changed little and this is a good thing. The main walkway takes you through Cypress swamps and ends up at a lake where its highly likely you'll see alligators or even disturb one sunbathing as we did! We also came across snakes and a multitude of different birds including and Osprey. It's free and I believe only open at weekends. Take Poinicana from US192 and its about 7 miles on the right.
