Three quarters of a mile of mostly boardwalk. More mature than Green Cay and so more birds however, during the season (winter) it gets packed with families with lots of noisy kids. I suggest that its best to go either early morning or early evening if you want to enjoy nature at its Florida best.

A wonderful preserve. So much native Florida wildlife to see. We spent hours there and still weren't done. We can't wait to go back again.

What a pleasant surprise ! We stopped on our way into town and had a great time walking the boardwalks and taking pictures of the birds, flowers and a HUGE iguana. It is in the sun so wear a hat but it is so worth a little sun to see these wetlands.

I stumbled upon this place searching for the top 10 things to do in Delray Beach on TripAdvisor.com today while trying to figure out what to do on a free afternoon. Nestled off the busy Jog Road, this wetland is a wildlife and bird-watcher's paradise. Maintained by Palm Beach county, it offers free admission. There's a well-planned walkway on top... More

Simple a wonderful place to observe nature. Specifically a crazy amount of very large birds, their babies in the Spring. Alligators, turtles,fish. Just walk around on the boardwalk. Love it.

If you're a "Bird Nerd" like I am,this is a wonderful place to go. There are surprises everywhere you look. You'll be walking along the boardwalk and Taking a small break when all of a sudden you see a rare bird perched on the railing, or even seeing a rare butterfly. You never know what find. Bring your camera and... More
