About Colohatchee Park
The Colohatchee Nature Center is an 8.5 acre community park. This mangrove preserve offers nature enthusiasts a great view of red and white mangroves and the animals that live in their habitats. An elevated walkway takes you through the wetland areas of the Middle River into the back of the park.  Located in the back of the park are restrooms, a dog play area, basketball court, sand volleyball court, playground and a pavilion which will hold up to 75 people.
