Lovely Bird Walk

I enjoyed my walk at Green Cay Nature Center. There are two loops-one is 1 mile and the other .5 mile. They almost form a figure eight. There are so many species of birds... read more

I enjoyed my walk at Green Cay Nature Center. There are two loops-one is 1 mile and the other .5 mile. They almost form a figure eight. There are so many species of birds native to the area in this beautiful setting. A relaxing, educational morning or afternoon.

This is a wonderful hike with great photo ops. Saw many varieties of birds, several alligators and turtles. We walked it twice...once for exercise and once to stop and enjoy the plants and animals.

A highlight of any trip to Southeast Florida for any age. See birds, turtles, alligators, trees, grasses and water plants during your walk along the boardwalk. We visited on multiple days at different times of the day, saw a tremendous variation of sites, and heard a great variety of sounds. All this is free!

A wonderful 1 1/2 mile boardwalk through a beautiful wetland teeming with variety of birds, turtles, and alligators. Great photo opportunities and fully wheelchair accessible. Nature Center closed on Sundays and you are requested not to bring food into park. And it is FREE.

No charge, walk at your own pace and look at Florida nature in it's original habitat. Take some binoculars and a camera, you never know what you might see. Lot's of birds, turtles and alligators spotted on our walk.

Green Cay is a unique way to experience South Florida nature and best of all, it's free! A 1 1/2 mi loop on an elevated boardwalk through the wetlands (stroller friendly) in early morning or late afternoon during the winter months is especially satisfying and and wonderful for birders, photographers or just anyone who wants to experience the unique eco-system....

Great place. No charge to get in unless it is a special event of some kind. Saw many different birds, a baby alligator, turtles and an amazing view on a boardwalk.

Boynton Beach has two nature preserves and wetlands. If you're a nature photographer don't miss them. Green Cay is the newer of the two so the vegetation is not as plush as the Wakodahachee nature preserve. But you will find water birds nesting, alligators, turtles, and more. They each have a boardwalk for easy walking. Great for families with children.... More
