In a way, Green Cay Nature Center/Wetlands is like a Dream Come True Experience. Things can and do change every moment: From the great parking facility, to walking a maze of paths on raised boardwalk. The birds, turtles, alligators and greenery and tranquility of your strolls is hard to stay away from. Plus,there are a lot of photographers all of... More

This place is special with its boardwalk and information available to nature lovers. It is very hot and very few breezes, so plan an early time to enjoy.

The raised boardwalk takes you through the wetlands where you'll see a lot of birds, turtles and other wildlife. Very relaxing and enjoyable. I can't wait to return and walk through there again.

This is a wonderful preserve to see all sorts of birds , alligators and many different types of reptiles. It has a great trail that goes all the way around the property that runs for 1 and a half miles and another that goes for 1 mile. People stroll and take photos. Others jog and some just walk along chatting.... More

This is a wonderful nature park for walking or bird and wildlife viewing. Each time you walk the boardwalk you will see something different. The sunrise in the morning is worth the visit. The nature center is very well done. Visits are at posted times. The walk can be adjusted depending on your ability and desires. It can be as... More

Try to go early morning or later in the afternoon to see more animals feeding🐊 Allow 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours for an enjoyable time.

A well-constructed boardwalk provides the means to enjoy the flora and fauna of these man-made wetlands. So, whether you come to see the wildlife or to get-fit this is a worthwhile destination.

This is a birdwatchers paradise. In the mornings the boardwalk over the marsh attracts the walkers, bird watchers and photographers. Nice place to spend some time and the children can look for the little ducks and the sunbathing turtles.

If you love nature and birding, then Green Cay is the place for you to visit. There is a boardwalk around the wetlands where you can stop and enjoy watching the birds. If you are luck, you can spot an alligator either sunning or swimming. My favorite time to go is in early May when the baby birds are in... More
