This is a beautiful area and a nice large boardwalk with lots of opportunities to view birds and other wildlife. It is a bit expansive and thus some of the wildlife can be quite far away. I prefer the smaller Wakodahatchee Wetlands that is nearby as I feel closer to nature there. Green Cay has nice grounds and huge parking... More

The Green Cay Nature Center and Wetlands is my favorite boardwalk nature trail outside of the Everglades. It has so many positives: free admission, free parking, free admission to the air conditioned visitor center and animal exhibits and one of the richest varieties of wildlife I've seen, only with the exception of the Everglades Anhinga trail. Walking down the boardwalk... More

In a way, Green Cay Nature Center/Wetlands is like a Dream Come True Experience. Things can and do change every moment: From the great parking facility, to walking a maze of paths on raised boardwalk. The birds, turtles, alligators and greenery and tranquility of your strolls is hard to stay away from. Plus,there are a lot of photographers all of... More

This place is special with its boardwalk and information available to nature lovers. It is very hot and very few breezes, so plan an early time to enjoy.

The raised boardwalk takes you through the wetlands where you'll see a lot of birds, turtles and other wildlife. Very relaxing and enjoyable. I can't wait to return and walk through there again.

This is a wonderful preserve to see all sorts of birds , alligators and many different types of reptiles. It has a great trail that goes all the way around the property that runs for 1 and a half miles and another that goes for 1 mile. People stroll and take photos. Others jog and some just walk along chatting.... More

This is a wonderful nature park for walking or bird and wildlife viewing. Each time you walk the boardwalk you will see something different. The sunrise in the morning is worth the visit. The nature center is very well done. Visits are at posted times. The walk can be adjusted depending on your ability and desires. It can be as... More

Try to go early morning or later in the afternoon to see more animals feeding🐊 Allow 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours for an enjoyable time.
