There are so many wonderful things to do in Florida, but this is one of the best for just a small parking fee. Walk the boardwalk and enjoy nature. If you walk the whole trail, it is 1.2 miles, and there are stops to sit...More

I went with three friends. The area is dry this time of the year so you do not see as many birds or reptiles. We all love photography and we did get to see an alligator, actually two and 6 different species of birds

This is a fantastic place to go for a long, afternoon walk in the wild. See all types of shore birds and aquatic life along the boardwalks or rent a paddle boat for a close up look.

Spent an hour here walking the board walk, saw some birds but unfortunately no alligators or otters. It's very peaceful so it great if you want to go and relax and get some fresh air!

Excellent free adventure. Handicap wheelchair accessible on wood plank that trail around a lake. Wildlife placards are educational along the way. Circular walk is easy and relaxing if people are quiet. Binoculars are helpful. I have been here twice and enjoy the Cypress tree aroma,...More

Lovely boardwalk through wetlands and past several ponds. Went on a Monday so the interpretive center was closed but there were some guides present to answer questions.

This a very relaxing place to visit. Wonderful park setting to enjoy on a sunny day. Walking is involved to see the sights.
