“Boca Before Development”

Yamato Scrub Natural Area
Reviewed February 27, 2016

If you've ever wondered what this part of Florida looked like before all the tourists arrived, you can get a pretty good idea strolling though this sandy wasteland just east of I-95. The cynics might say that the area was too unattractive for a housing development, but that would be unkind. For what ever reason, Boca's City Council decided that this scrub area would make a nice nature preserve. So go and enjoy it for what it is.

It is close by, just use restrooms before you go, and bring h2o. It is a really nice walk and geocaching location.

I biked through the area (which has nice paths throughout). It was a great place to get a little exercise and see a little nature at the same time. Iguanas along the river, fantastic bird life. Very nice area.

Worth doing - as a morning walk, or a longer hike, or a jog. Different length walking paths. Enjoyed exploring through the Yamato Scrub.

They have done little to change the landscape, which is what's good. Plus the fact its in an industrial park. It has trails and a bike trail, and trash cans. Around the trash is where I saw the most birds. You can spot some wildlife.
