Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs Florida is an ideal place to take a leisurely stroll through nature and catch Pokemon.

Under the cover of shade trees and amongst towering columns, droves of people congregate to use and farm lures. Along the one mile walking path that loops around Cranes Roost Lake you can enjoy  spectacular views, a variety of bird species, tons of turtles, and the company of other players.

 The lake is home to several Florida Softshell Turtles. Did you know the Florida Softshell Turtle is the largest softshell turtle in North America? I counted three of them in the short time I was there. Most of the turtles congregate toward the far right corner of the lake if you are standing at the plaza. You can find them in abundance alongside the walkway that stretches over the lake. Just look over the rail and you will see dozens of turtles swimming about.
