What a great place to get out and enjoy the peace of nature at its finest. Just reopened after Hurricane Irma and the water level was pretty high. Great photo opportunities and all sorts of birds.

Lots of things to see. The boardwalk is always full of birds, reptiles, bugs, etc. A real naturalist's dream. At the end of the boardwalk is the river. An observation dock is there to rest and take in the nature. Also there, are kayak rentals,...More

My husband and I visited shortly after hurricane Irma and the majority of the trail was closed. The area that was open was nice but we look forward to going back when we can walk the entire park!

A very nice preserve to take a walk through...My only complaint is the paths not marked to direct you to exit...I was actually lost for 30 minutes trying to exit park...

This park has a boardwalk as to not damage the ecological views. Did not see any alligators, but did see many birds.

Unfortunately, this may be the closest thing we have to a boardwalk. However, it is such a peaceful and relaxing walk. We love the pier and overlooking downtown FM.

Boardwalk underneath mangrove trees which provided a nice and shaded walkway. Not much wildlife aside from some little crabs and spiders... A nice walk though towards a big pond, lasting about one hour.

Fun to go biking in proper Florida nature. Small adventure in Cape Coral and no costs! Well kept park. Also kayaking available.

Don't let the word "swamp" scare you. This is a lovely preserve, and the entire walking path is a flat, well-maintained wooden board walk that goes through the trees and has full, pretty river views in two places. It is the land that time forgot!...More

This depends on the season. Obviously if we have had much rain, the area gets mucky. Winter is considered dry season, and there are not the mosquitos to contend with either. Enjoy!!
