Go when it's a little cooler. It's a great walk and you can see all kinds of wildlife... Birds, turtles, shakes, fish and gators. It's a wall above the water so even though you're seeing all these things your safe.

I was here this past winter with a friend. It's such a beautiful & peaceful place to wander. The signage is excellent & explains all all the different wildlife that it there. Good place to go with anyone, including grandchildren.

This is a beautiful place to walk and see Florida as it was before it was developed. There are many varieties of birds and a good place to see alligators. There is no charge for this activity.
