Palmetto Estuary Preserve

98 US-41 Palmetto, FL 34221

Nestled along the Manatee River, Palmetto Estuary Park is a hidden gem. This tranquil haven is easily accessible through U.S. Highway 41/301 and contains wildlife habitat for native wading birds such as the wood stork, snowy egret and Roseate spoonbill. This is the largest park in Manatee County and offers fun for the entire family. Now, nature lovers can also enjoy parking under a solar canopy that feeds clean energy back to the electric grid, benefiting the community and providing shade on sunny days.
