Bobby’s Cove Part 3 -Photos Taken In 2012

There has been a lot of changes here over the past 6-7 years. We are reclaiming the land. Reverting it back to what it once was. Part of Lake Kissimmee. Pushing in the ditches from the sod farm, leveling out the land.
We once had miles and miles of paths here that we could travel MOST of the year. Now the land is under water in most places.
It is a continuing process. I also continue to pick of years and years of trash that was just left here by previous owners and their workers.

    nice pictures….how many acres are you caring for??? sad people can’t pick up there own garbage….

    1. Our Park- Lake Kissimmee State Park, is around 6,000 acres. Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park has around 7, ooo acres. Rolling Meadows Ranch had around 12, 000 acres to manage. Now it’s closer to 9 ,000 acres . The other is now underwater. It is still part of Rolling Meadows. RMR is in the middle of the 2 Parks. You can drive all the way from one to another. We have a few smaller pieces of property in the area as well.
      The sod farm people never took care of the land. You are so right. It is a shame. Our yard is one huge dump. Or it was. The first year I picked up over 100 large trash bags in just a few months. It was awful.

        It looks like its really turning back into the wetlands it was…..very nice area….

        1. You got the idea. I was having trouble explaining it.I understand but can’t explain things well.

          1. New Journey says:

            you do just fine….

            1. Yes, I really do. 🙂

    I hope you would make it look green and lush 🙂


    1. Anand,
      It’s being restored to it’s native habitat. We aren’t really doing anything except removing the man made barriers that were put here for the sod fields. We have filled in small waterways with dirt to level out the property so the water can come in from Lake Hatchineha and go out to Lake Kissimmee on down to the Everglades mile aways. This is also going to re-open another waterway that needs to be opened again. Catfish Creek. A huge creek that meanders from Allen David Catfish Creek Preserve State Park through Rolling Meadows Ranch . Right now it is only open part way and kayaks and canoes can only go so far. They should be able to come in from one area of Lake Hatchineha meander through our area for miles and then go back out to Lake Hatchineha at another place. This gives them a good water trail for canoes and kayaks. Danny and I would love that because we love to kayak.
      This is a long project.
      So much of the land will be flooded and other sections not. It is hard to explain without you having seen this area.

      1. Vibrant says:

        Yes, it’s a long project and I certainly have slight difficulty in understanding it but with repeated exposure I would understand, I feel you are doing a great thing and you can keep sharing with us. Best Wishes!! Anand

        1. We have really been busy. Not as much this past year. Everything was put on hold for awhile. Money issues….and who knows what else but they have recently started things again. Before I got laid up, I was helping with the simple tractor work.
          The park (meaning Danny, Myself and staff ) does only MINOR THINGS. They have huge groups working on it.
          Like I said , hard to understand if you are here.

          1. Vibrant says:

            That’s true. Please take care of health and keep contributing as much as you can for social welfare 🙂

            1. I do. I love it when I am working outside helping.

              1. Vibrant says:

                Yes I understand. Helping others elevates us and we forget our own troubles 🙂 🙂

                1. It certainly does. It just feels good. 🙂 🙂

                  1. Vibrant says:

                    Yes because we are social beings 🙂
