A lovely retreat into nature which is free! Following the boardwalk we saw lots of birds, ducks, natural fauna, and alligators. Overall a really delightful walk in nature. Make sure you have your camera with you for this walk.

Wonderful nature center. Boardwalk has two loops - approximate 1/2 mile and mile. Guided tours, lectures, museum are all here. Walk the boardwalks and see the birds. Maybe even catch a glimpse of the resident alligators. Watch out for all the photographers who come here...More

What a jewel green cay is. So easy to walk around comfortably on boardwalk paths. Take the 1/2 mile or 1 mile route. Many varieties of bird, turtles and of course alligators!

Not as nice as Wakodahatchee Wetlands Nature Walk. The boardwald is 1 & 1/2 mile but there aren't as much wildlife to see.
