Although the nature center was closed when we arrived at around 6:30PM, the boardwalk was open. It's open from 7AM to dusk. It's free to take a walk and see some incredible birds and nature! The parking area allows for many cars and there are signs to help people remember where their car is parked. Bathrooms open at 7AM. Overall... More

Nice place to visit and get some quiet time with nature, with people who enjoy the same thing. They offer free tours. You never know what you are going to see. I like going to walk the boardwalk and enjoy the outdoors a bit.

A very chill place to take a meandering walk.... plenty of birds and wildlife to be seen. There are gators... I even saw baby cougar cats last time I was there (they were near the small lagoon in the middle of the boardwalk circle). Very well kept. Does tend to get a bit crowded sometimes though.

I didn't even realize that this place was here until I was searching tripadvisor the other day. I expected it to be nice, but it was even better than expected. It's just a few miles from our home, and we've been missing out! I look forward to taking family there when they visit. There is plenty of parking, especially during... More

Great way to spend an hour or more watching birds. Lovely boardwalk to walk and some shade for sitting.

Great place to see wildlife close to town. Dawn or dusk are great times to see and photograph awesome sights! This property was a former vegetable farm. Wonderful place to walk the very safe boardwalk. Most people adhere to the no cell phone rule, so it's a peaceful retreat.

Stroll or walk at a fast pace, through this man-made paradise, on the boardwalk. Visit the exhibits inside the nature center and watch the film about the ecosystem of South Florida, and the making of Green Cay. There are volunteers that will help explain what you are seeing. If you are looking to photograph birds, and their habitat, you will... More
