Sea Turtle Day Festival

March 2, 2019


There is no parking at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center the day of the event or the day before.  Free parking and shuttle buses are available in Spanish River Park, just north of Gumbo Limbo on A1A.  Shuttles will run from 8:45 AM - 4:30 PM.  A map of the parking lot and bus stops can be viewed here.  Limited handicapped parking is available in front of Gumbo Limbo (adjacent to the sign) and in Red Reef West.

Drop-offs/pick-ups are not permitted in front of Gumbo Limbo during the festival.  If you must drop-off, or are using ride share, do so in Red Reef West and walk the sidewalk along A1A (the boardwalk may be closed due to construction).  You may also drop-off in Spanish River Park and ride the shuttle.

Shuttle Schedule

Shuttle stops will be located at the end of each half of the parking loops.  Shuttles should be available every 7 to 10 minutes. Please be sure to remember your shuttle stop. Return shuttles will run until 4:30 pm.
