Amberjack is a 225 acre park made up of unique scrub, pine flatwoods, marshes and other beautiful areas. Amberjack is traversed by two significant wetlands. They are havens for several species of wading birds, including glossy ibis, roseate spoonbills and snowy egrets. Two boardwalks lead to observational platforms on Lemon Lake, where people can enjoy the amazing variety of birds who inhabit the lake and the surrounding areas.

To get there: The Park is located on the southern half of the Cape Haze peninsula. Travel west on 776 (from Port Charlotte) and turn left onto CR 775 (Placida Road).
