Crowley contains 185 acres of sensitive lands along the Myakka River. We are open four days per week, and close the park three days per week in order to allow the animals opportunity to express natural behaviors. The center also features a pioneer museum which exhibits a variety of historic objects, mostly from the Crowley family and the Old Miakka area. The museum is partially arranged like a general store, such as the one John Crowley and his son Jim had kept. A cowboy photography exhibit by well-known area photographer Jimmy Peters is also in the museum.
