CHEC at Cedar Point
Cedar Point Park was purchased by Charlotte County in 1992, trails were established in 1995, and the Visitor Center opened to the public in 1998. CHEC has been actively involved in its management and the coordination of educational and recreational programs since 1995.
The Park is a 115-acre Charlotte County Park located in Englewood across from Lemon Bay High School that borders Ainger Creek, Oyster Creek and Lemon Bay. Three hiking trails lead directly to Lemon Bay. Cedar Point also has guided walks, special event lecture programs, a Native Plant Butterfly Garden with plants identified, an historical Cookie House building, and an Eagle's nest, to name a few of the things you can experience at this Park.
The Cookie House was the first fulltime marine station in Florida. The “Cookie House” log cabin was relocated from the old Bass laboratory site on New Point Comfort Road in Englewood. Read more about this historical structure and why it is called "The Cookie House"..
American Bald Eagles have nested in the Park since at least 1992!
Stop in the Visitor's Center and purchase some local honey and find the Sea Shell Display, "Touch Table", plenty of free maps and educational literature.
To protect our wildlife, Dogs are not permitted in the park. Please take only Pictures and Leave only Footprints!
