Historically, the site was saw grass marsh located between the historic shore of Lake Okeechobee and the pine flat woods to the north. The Okeechobee Battlefield has tremendous potential to become the principal heritage destination point for the Okeechobee area. The site's historical significance is the perfect place for an interpretive center/museum, as well as being the site of an annual commemorative re-enactment of the battle. The proposed park could also be linked to the Okeechobee trail that will follow the dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee.
