Turkey Creek Sanctuary
A tributary of the Indian River with its mouth in the bay of Palm Bay, Turkey Creek is a 4.1 mile-long waterway that runs through the Town of Malabar and City of Palm Bay. Take a guided tour through the Turkey Creek Sanctuary which offers two distinct habitats, each home to endangered plants and animals. The iconic Turkey Creek Sanctuary is the heart of Palm Bay offering 9 miles of biking trails that wind along the banks of the creek. The sanctuary also boasts a 4,000 ft. boardwalk, a nature trail, and 1.5 miles of jogging trails... all excellent for discovering wildlife. From most of the spots in the sanctuary, you'll see manatees, alligators, Florida cooters (turtles), and you might even see an otter or a gar fish. Birds abound in the old pine canopy, include ospreys and owls. The sanctuary can also be accessed by canoe or kayak. Further north is Castaways Point Park, a newly renovated park that provides one of the few natural beaches along the Indian River Lagoon. Castaways also provides fishing from two piers, both overlooking the Indian River, and is equipped with picnic tables, pavilions, and grills.
