This is an amazing preserve. We spent about an hour and a half, taking our time and getting lots of pictures. We saw alligators, a rat snake, and lots of birds. It is an easy walk and a very beautiful wetland preserve.

This is a very adult and kid friendly place where you can walk on boardwalks to see a variety of birds and trees, and perhaps other wildlife if you look closely. It is well laid out, and includes viewing stops with information as to what you might see. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nice way to get out of the... More

This was our first time visiting this beautiful park! When we arrived, a tour was just beginning and we were able to join it. It was led by a volunteer, Walter, who gave us so much interesting information as we followed him along the trail. He stopped at various points to show us a plant, tree or leaf characteristic. It...

This is approximately 1.5 hour walk on a nice boardwalk. Great place to see birds and plants. Has a information/museum to explore as well.

Excellent, informative and fun. Our guide was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Will go back since the wildlife and foliage change with the seasons.

Family fun, nice day, good memories, not enough wildlife. Takes a few hours but something to do as a family and good exercise.

This was a much needed stretch of our legs during a road trip through southern FL. There is a lovely board walk with various look out points. Volunteers are in place around the area also to answer any questions. We saw a lot of different birds during our walk. It was quiet, hard to believe so close to the bustling... More

We had a wonderful morning walking the Preserve. It was very hot and muggy but the tree covered walkways provided much needed shade. We saw many birds and a lone gator keeping cool in the pond.
