Even though this is a "man-made" wetland area, it's done very well. You can walk for 2-3 miles on wooden bridges/walkways and see a huge variety of birds, some turtles, and a few alligators as well. It's a great place to get in touch with nature and enjoy quiet time. Highly recommend it. Nice facilities.

We have visited here several times with our children and visiting guests. The out of towners are always very impressed by the plants and animals you can observe here. What makes it especially enjoyable is the we as locals always find a new animal or plant to admire. Very nice multiple boardwalks and they are marked for distances if you're... More

not often we take time out of our lives to get back in touch with the beautiful area we live in. With all the development, its a great thing to have facilities like this. took about an hour at a leisurely pace, reading the plaques and doing some animal watching. the center is only open a few days a week...

Birds, fish, turtles, and gators roam freely as you walk above and through the tranquil nature preserve. A wonderful morning walk and best of all, it's free! Tip: There are no bathrooms on the boardwalk, so make sure you go at the visitor center before you begin your walk.

Green Cay provides a lovely boardwalk into nature. I have always found many birds, occasional turtles, and alligators. You can walk at your own pace and will often find others pointing out various species. Taking binoculars is a good idea. While the vast majority of visitors exhibit proper decorum, there can be the loud visitor on a cell phone or... More

This is great for a short walk in the area. The boardwalk is great where you can actually see birds and alligators.

One board is mile and a half the second one is about half of a mile. Many bird watchers go to take pictures. You can also find a couple... More
