The place is not actually what the name tells about it. Most of the people have a notion that this is where there is celery vegetation. This is one of the best places for bird watching in the state and an extensive stretch of greenery which has highlands from where you can get a fantastic view of the surrounding scenery.
This field was earlier on known to be completely barren and then there was a flood in the 1900 after which the people used to grow celery over here and that is how the field got its name. After this phase migratory birds started making it their shelter and this is how it gained even more charm and beauty. History also says this place was once the place of mammoths, mastodons and other extinct animals. It is now a protected place and is a part of the rich tourism industry of the state.

The Celery Fields Reviews & Ratings
High elevation in Florida, not many places were can get that! Beautiful butterflies and kind people walking about. It’s right by the cat sanctuary so check it out after or before hand. It’s a nice walk around different paths that go all around and it’s very enjoyable especially on a nice dry sunny day. Bring a water bottle! 😊
This is a fabulous place to go for walks and to go bird watching during fall, winter and spring. I like how they have Audubon experts available to help identify birds at the two gazebos along the pond. I have seen birds, bunnies, turtles, aligators and eve river otters here. It is great if you love nature
I really enjoy the walking trails all over the fields, very nice. Just the one thing I noticed when I finished my run and needed to reat to sit down for a second, I went to the learning center where the garden is and it was a very sad looking garden that hasn’t been cared for in a while and I could tell. It would be nice to be able to seat at the centers garden and see beautiful flowers and butterflies other than dead trees and a cheese burger from McDonald’s on the floor when I visit it.
So for 13years living in Sarasota Florida I have been missing hills and mountains. Did you know we do have a hill?! I was no to thrilled about the idea of exploring it in the middle but of July’s hot sunny day but will admit my worries were quickly blown away with pleasant refreshing breeze. It’s an easy hike and even our 3 years old enjoyed running through the trails
Love this gem! Only hill for miles lol! Nice hike, always see wildlife! Private funding has made this gem possible
