Fantastic Natural Bird Wildlife Preserve

A elevated wooden walkway over wetlands that have turtles, alligators (few) and numerous birds, flying in and mating and feeding their young.... Great for the adults and kids

We went in May and saw many species of nesting birds, as well as three species of turtles and one alligator. The boardwalk started out well-shaded, but in the back stretch there's quite a bit of open sun. The alligator provided a circle of life moment as it ate. Parking was nearly full, busy season could be quite a challenge.

Around a mile boardwalk where you can see lots of birds, occasional turtles, and alligator (not on the boardwalk). Great for photographers and families.

Birder's and photographers will love Wakodahatchee! Beautiful wetland area with so many places for birds. You are very close to them and if you want to get photographs of birds in Florida, this is almost like a zoo for birds! It isn't very long, but I can spend hours there! I'm a photographer, so being so close to the birds... More

Wakodahatchee is a wonderful place to see birds, alligators and other wildlife. It's fairly small and manageable. The boardwalk is only approx. 3/4 of a mile long, but packed with action. Great for photographers and birdwatchers. It is enjoyed by all age groups. At times parking could be a problem, especially late afternoon & early evening, when the wildlife &... More

We stumbled on the Wakodahatchee Wetlands while driving around Palm Beach County looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. This area is reclaimed (or recreated?) Wetlands. Essentially, it is a raised bridge-boardwalk of less than a mile meandering through a wetland environment. There were many kinds of birds, turtles, some alligators (we only spotted one), and a giant... More

This spot may be a well kept secret from casual visitors to the area. It's a wonderful spot for bird watching and photographing the birds, especially in their nests. Some people come for a stroll as well. Very picturesque either way.

This half mile or so boardwalk will treat you to a wide variety of nesting birds, turtles, alligators, iguanas, and who knows what other surprises. The regulars there are very friendly and will usually take the time to answer questions. You'll also see the most amazing cameras along the way as the amateur photographers seek that perfect shot. Bring your... More

Rather short walk, so manageable for all levels. Beautiful path through wetlands. There are many birds visible, as well as some turtles and other wildlife.
