Wildlife Advisory

Due to dry weather conditions, aquatic wildlife are attracted to areas where water remains year long. South County Regional Park, 670 Cooper St., Punta Gorda, has several ponds that are very likely to draw water dependent wildlife. Be aware while visiting our parks with water bodies. Animals like alligators and water moccasins are more likely to be encountered at this time. If you encounter wildlife, maintain your distance and do not attempt to touch or handle it.
