parksThere are several parks in Punta Gorda, Florida, less than six miles from Creekside RV Resort. The Harborwalk is a two miles path along Charlotte Harbor for walkers, joggers and bikers. On its western end, you can access the shops and restaurants of Fishermen’s Village, and on its eastern end lies the Charlotte Regional Medical Center. Between these two points, Gilchrist Park and Laishley Park make for pleasant stops with restrooms, gazebos, picnic tables, gardens, playgrounds, basketball, pickleball and tennis courts and fishing piers. Ponce de Leon Park is a sixteen acre facility located along Charlotte Harbor. The park contains a boardwalk through a mangrove forest, a non-profit wildlife sanctuary, a fishing pier, a beach area, a playground and boat ramp facilities. The park is effectively buffered from the surrounding neighborhoods by a portion of the Charlotte Harbor State Buffer Reserve.
