Love going there for walking/ exercise and enjoying nature. It is a 10+ When the grandchildren are in town, it is one of their favorite places to visit. All the volunteers are warm and friendly.

This center does not compare to Wakodahatche on Jog Rd for abundance and sighting of wildlife. They have a museum here which is great for little kids and first time visitors. This nature center came a number of years after Wakodahatche and therefore has had less time for animals and plants to enter the environment If you want the kids... More

I live just 5 miles away from this treasure and didn't even know about it until a friend took me there. Plenty of parking, clean bathrooms, water fountains and an educational pavilion that is air conditioned, are just the beginning of a wonderful early morning outing. Whether you are into birding or out for a breath of fresh air, this... More

Whenever you go you will have a fantastic time! All kinds of birds in a beautiful setting. Go multiple times of the year to see all the seasonal changes. Walk along at your leisure on a well maintained boardwalk. I bought a bird id book so I can familiarize myself with all the different species as I walk along. I... More

This is one of the most breathtaking parks in the USA. No matter what time of day, you are going to love being here. You can start early at 6:20 AM or later. There is a regular group of early morning walkers who often carry flashlights in winter. Why flashlights: it is dark in the morning on the boardwalks. Often... More

Green Cay is near enough to us to visit often. But if you are anywhere in South Florida it is worth the trip often. The Nature center and the elevated board walk let you view dozens of species of wild life up close. Bring your camera and binoculars. You will be amazed.

Serene, old wild Florida. Abundant birdlife. Can get crowded and noisy, but the birds don't seem to mind the tourists.

We love to take walks on the boardwalk at Green Cay. Wildlife is abundant and the views are just stunning. You really forget that you are in the middle of western Boynton Beach. There is a nature center full of additional animals to enjoy as well. The fact that it's free is really a gift. We love it!

This outdoor walking trail/boardwalk is a great place that I have visited often. For the first time I was able to go inside the building (hours can be limiting) and it was fabulous for the kids. They have a tank with 5 alligators and another tank with a few turtles. On the day we were there they also had an... More

It is very interesting to walk around here. There is a very nice indoor exhibit and they do things that are very subtle so you have to ask around to see what is going on sometimes outside. The showy birds seem to have a set pattern of going a mile or two away to the other Wetland practically around the... More
