Reviewed 10 July 2017

We were happily surprised by this wonderful place but wish we would have known these three things.
1) Its slippery. I guess I should have known with all the cool boardwalks under trees in a swamp it would make for slippery conditions but I just wasn't thinking. It isn't unsafe - just make sure your kids don't run, and you are prepared with good shoes.
2) Its a long walk. How far does the boardwalks go..... we have no idea, we ended up turning around because there was no end in sight. It was great, and the raptors along the route make for a great visit, but its a long walk in the woods.
3) Its peaceful. We enjoyed going in the morning and are glad we did. It was so peaceful and nice. The raptors were an added bonus.

You will enjoy this place.

We took a late afternoon walk on the boardwalks over the cypress wetlands. Very tranquil with frogs peeping and birds twittering. We took a left to see the raptor rehab "homes" and saw three or more types of owls, two types of hawks, and a great American Eagle. He was huge and was in a mood to talk to my friend. It was an interesting conversation, each one speaking in his/her own language! Ha! It was cool, both literally and figuratively. Boardwalks also provide a safe trail over the cypress wetlands leading to a nice looking pond about 1/2 mile east, so you can get a little over a mile walk if you go to the Golden pond and back.

This free park has birds of prey that are being rehabilitated. We enjoyed walking the entire park on a very hot day. The entire park has a wooden walkway that meanders through the grove and to 2 ponds.
