The Florida State Park Plein Air Painting Tour – Painting each of Florida's State Parks on location
Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park covers many acres and has several entrance points. We chose to visit this park at the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center. For some reason it was closed on a Saturday afternoon! So we parked at the main gate near the highway and walked in.
Down the shell road sits a cluster of buildings with a visitors center and plant nursery. We walked around a few of the trails and I ended up painting the view of one of the trails at the education center. The trail leads to a small pond with a dock. The pond is obviously home to an alligator or two, but I didn’t see any while there.
