I live in the Orlando area, and love bringing family and friends to this park. Miles of trails; tons of birds and alligators. The park is quite remote and peaceful, and has a primitive feel. After you visit this amazing park, learn about its history and development - you will be surprised!

If you want to spend time in nature, this is a SUPER place. It's FREE and there is always something to see. The paths are wide, well maintained and you can ride a bike on them with no problems. A lot of trails to hike on. You will be able to see gators along with hundreds of birds. The staff... More

Best Free Thing To Do In Orlando A Must Bike or Walk You Pick! I never get tired of exploring this great Free Park. You see something different each and everytime you visit.

If you're looking to spend time in nature, this is the place. It's free and there is always something to see. The paths are wide, well maintained and solid enough to ride a bike on with no problems. You are almost guaranteed to see gators on every visit, along with hundreds of birds wading through the wetlands. Such a great... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip here today. The variety and proximity of waterfowl were amazing, and it was unlike anything we'd ever done before. There are volunteers on golf carts who will drive you around and chat about the sights. If I lived in Orlando, I would come here every weekend. Pack water and something to put... More

Neat to explore this area on a cool winter day. Alligators and water fowl abound, but most trails are very exposed so not to do in high heat or without sunscreen. We ended up hiking about 8 miles across the various filtration reservoirs and long the back of the property where it meets up with the Florida Trail. There is... More

We were tipped off about this fascinating place by a volunteer at the Fort Christmas Historical Park which is nearby. And, were we glad! How interesting! This is a man-made wetlands created by reclaimed discharge from the Bridge Plant in South Seminole County. A 75-acre lake was created which provided fill for the berm construction that surround the 18 wetland... More

This place was a jewel of places to visit. Volunteers and friendly,helpful and knowledgeable of area and wildlife. For a donations volunteers will take you on a golf cart tour and provide lots of information on wildlife. From alligators, racoons, turtles and otters to so many species of birds I lost track. You have to make this a destination soon.

My partner and I visited Orlando Wetlands in March this year on the recommendation of a visitor we met at Merritt Island. It is a wetland area that acts as a water treatment plant for Orlando, taking in waste water, passing it through the reedbeds and out into the St John River, cleaner than the river water itself. The area... More
