Better than watching paint dry or going to the dentist. BUt that's about it. Trails are rough, not much nature to see, and you hear the roar of the nearby traffic. Go to the beach instead

I was concerned about walking here (female, over 50), when I parked, since it looks so isolated (even though it is a stones throw from I-95). But, not to worry - there were families and singles (both ladies, coincidentally) walking about. But, by no means crowded! It was very clean, and a great place to stretch your legs. There is a short paved nature walk, and a considerably longer loop walk. There is good signage and maps in the parking area. Bring water. I found it a refreshing break from the urban craziness all around. It is very pretty and has a small pond in the middle. The paved area, including the pond, seems wheelchair accessible to me.

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.
