One can view all types of birds, alligators, turtles and other wildlife. Boardwalk runs a couple of miles with plenty of benches to rest.

Nice and serene. Went to check it out for when our grandchildren visit. Definitely will take them there. Great setting and a great place to take pictures. We forget what nature is all about. Hard to believe it is located in the middle of developments around it.

A fantastic setting and a wholesome place for the entire family. The fact that it is cost free. It is a beautiful romp through many natural sights that we have in Florida.

It's fairly new in comparison to some of the other wetlands. They are still filling in with more birds, reptiles and turtles.That said it is a great place for walkers with its beautiful boardwalk ( 1 mile around), Inside is a wonderful staff to help and guide you. And best of all, it's free.

With adequate parking and a nature center that was closed... More
