Picnic Area & Observation Tower
Shaded by oaks with limbs that take grotesque shapes, the picnic area, deserted when these pictures were made, can handle extremely large groups. At its edge is an observation tower from the top of which Lake Kissimmee is visible across what would be a marsh in the wet season but in late May 2000 is so dry that the apparently dead grass chunches under foot.
