Beaches, Parks and Recreation
Bonita Springs has charm of its own. Known for its parks and beaches, Little Hickory Island Beach Park is on a road-accessible barrier island known as Little Hickory Island. Its allure is a sense of seclusion, along with decent surf for those water enthusiasts. Bonita Beach Park is another favorite with beach vegetation, sand dunes and volleyball. To the north is Lovers Key State Park – a 2 mile island stretch of white sands, reachable only by boat. It is now known as a romantic destination for weddings, swimming and kayaking. Another unique find is the Everglades Wonder Garden. This park began in 1936 and grew from reptiles to include animals on its trails and botanical life along the way. After transitioning to new owners in 2013 and then even further development, the park became a non-profit entity. Today the Gardens are home to rescued birds and reptiles nestled among the old growth plants.
The Imperial River flows through the downtown district of the city and empties out into Estero Bay side of the town. Nearby, Bonita Springs Riverside Park is home to community events like outdoor movies and music festivals. Shopping is easy to find at shoppes like the Tangerine Coastal Market, Flamingo Island Flea Market, Pottery as Art, Collective Consignment, Victoria’s (for hand-painted tees) and others. Several styles of cuisine can be found downtown at restaurants including French, Italian, American, Latin, Seafood, Caribbean and Mexican.
Bonita Springs district information shows 16 preschool options, 8 elementary and middle schools, and 4 high schools. Bonita Springs Elementary School (PK-5) placed above average in school rankings.
