Nice walk on boardwalk in a preserve for birds- a few alligators along the way, some large turtles and depending on the time of day a few other animals too.Of course many of the birds fly north in the summer so it's a better walk during the winter months. Great for kids

I was visiting my daughter and a good friend from college who lives up the road from Green Cay took me there . It was lunch time and we practically had the place to ourselves - most of the wildlife and humans were taking a break from the heat ! As you walk along the boardwalk keep your eyes open... More

We took my son, who was visiting for the weekend from CT to this spot, as all the parking spots as Wakodahatchee were filled up this past Sunday. Although we prefer W over GreenCay, my son thought the opposite. Go figure.

This terrific natural area is near Wakodahatchee and was opened a few years later. Both are great spots to see wildlife, especially water fowl, but Green Cay has more parking spaces and a very good visitor center/museum. From there you can walk on trails along boardwalks, one a half mile long and the other about a mile. There are also... More

I first walked the long boardwalks of Green Cay Nature Center & Wetlands last year. I've return twice this year, in a span of less than two weeks. This place is a birding and photography paradise! And, if you're interested in alligators and turtles, you can find them, too. In fact, I found them together - an alligator had caught,... More

What a wonderful way to see and hear nature, and get exercise! Walk over the wetlands on trails of boardwalk. It's wide enough for spectators and walkers to share. Binoculars would have been great, as a lot of the nature was hidden and camouflaged. Take your time; there's a LOT to see, as nature is forever changing! I found the... More
