Nice boardwalk tour of nature. Usually see a lot of wildlife. Alligators, herons, snakes and boars. Take the guided tour for a nice introduction to Florida wildlife. Entry is free. Parking is $1 per hour. Great for kids.

Everything was closed except the boardwalk. We were able to enjoy a stroll with our granddaughters. Very nice. Saw animals. Clean and well maintained.

The Slough is a raised boardwalk loop through a cypress swamp about 1 1/2 miles long - it is an easy walk. We saw about 8 different varieties of birds, a large alligator and a huge turtle. Parking is only $1 per hour.

If you want to see nature at its best, this is it. Nice walk on boardwalks throughout the Park. Saw Gators, tuiles, herons, egrets.

A very enjoyable visit although an overcast day made photographing birds a challenge. We did see a lot of birdlife and a few alligators and water moccasin snakes. Only wish people would control their kids. It really isn't okay to have them running noisily around.

The only charge is for parking which maxes out at $5 for a whole day - more than you are likely to need. There are docent lead tours each morning at no charge. I believe they last a couple of hours. There is also a brochure... More
