Green Cay is a water preserve area with ample wildlife to see. There is a 100 acres with wooden walkways on two separate trails. A variety of birds, and alligators can be seen in their natural habitat. Wildlife photographers are always present capturing unusual pictures. In the summer best to visit in the morning to avoid the Florida heat.

I love to go walk the boardwalk looking for wildlife! It never disappoints. As a photographer, there is never a lack of subjects to photograph. The birds are fabulous and it's always fun to spot a gator. The boardwalks are nice maintained, the nature center has lots of great info.

It's pretty hard to beat a free park with such great amenities! When the main office is open, you can go inside an a/c cooled building and see aquaculture, buy gifts to support the park, and enjoy very friendly volunteers who like to chat. I bring both of my young boys (under 5) and my husband. We always see something... More

First, this place is free. You can get in a good walk/exercise, while seeing different kinds of wildlife. Bring water and a camera with you!

See alligators, turtles, native birds, swamps & all kinds of local fauna safely from 1 1/2 miles of an elevated boardwalk. Dynamic, beautiful, exciting & peaceful. Free. Insect spray is suggested. Here is a video we made of our visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIFzGRXupBQ

Great place to see wild life and enjoy a safe walk. It is a wonderful place to take children. Also, go on the night walking tour it was so interesting and informative. I really enjoy it here and go frequently since the hours are from very early morning until evening.

I spent about two hours walking around and exploring the area. They have built wooden walkways, or maybe boardwalks, over a natural habitat. There are shaded areas and there are many sunny areas. If you are sensitive you should bring plenty of sunscreen and or an umbrella. The weather here is usually hot or very hot so be prepared. There... More
