Gordy Road Recreation Area at Ten Mile Creek
Ten Mile Creek Reservoir and Stormwater Treatment Area are under construction and not open to the public. Two areas related to Ten Mile Creek Preserve are the Gordy Road Recreation Area and the Ten Mile Creek Preserve. Both areas are managed by St. Lucie County (website links below). This description is some of the activity areas that may be developed at the Gordy Road Recreation Area.
If you're looking for something different to do, come to the Ten Mile Creek Recreation Area. Frisbee golf is slated to be among the recreational opportunities at the county-managed park. More traditional amenities include picnic pavilions, nature trails and hiking trails. A deep, reclaimed borrow pit with an observation deck will make a good place to fish and canoe. The park is adjacent to a major water preserve area designed to store water inland to reduce the impact of flood control on the coastal estuary. A trailhead for the water preserve will be located at the park. Five miles of trails will be available at the preserve for hiking and nature study.
