Boyd Hill Nature Park lies within the neighborhood boundaries and provides recreation, entertainment and educational opportunities year round. There is a nature museum and a variety of programs for the public: Pioneer Days (featuring the Pioneer Village of historic buildings from various parts of the City), Old Machine Days, Art Arbor (featuring the works and crafts of predominantly Florida craftsman and artists), and Civil War enactments (both day and night). The Park also holds nature classes and overnight camping during the summer months for young people. There are guided walking and riding tours during the days and evenings throughout the year.
The park is an environmentally sensitive area, as well as home to endangered species (i.e. Gopher Turtles, flying squirrels and fox squirrels). The Park is also home for bald eagles, falcons, red tail and red shoulder hawks, alligators and several other species of smaller reptiles.
