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

This is one of the places I make sure my visitors go to. The kids love to look for the baby alligators at the alligator pond. I like the bird feeders where I see the painted buntings. I've gotten to the point where I can name most of the birds. I suggest if you want something to do, go to... More

Always an enjoyable walk around the boardwalk. Birds, fish, turtles, etc. Each visit is different. I enjoy the indoor area too. Small shop and display cases teach about the local habitat.

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...
