This man-made wetlands ecosystem is not only filtering our water, but it gives us a beautiful place to walk the well-kept boardwalk, photograph nature, bird-watch. We saw numerous varieties of birds, including several with young, including a black bellied whistling duck with 10 ducklings!

What a great place to take in the look of natural beauty of Florida, albeit created by man! We were there in May during nesting season and got some beautiful photographs. Walk around the entire boardwalk at either sunrise or an hour before sunset. The sounds are amazing!

A place that you would not expect to find tucked off the main road. A 3/4 mile walk around wetlands on a boardwalk. Places to watch for birds, alligators, turtles and plants. Bring your camera, binoculars or both. People walk alone, in groups and there are couples holding hands. Dress comfy, wear flats and enjoy!

Nice place to check out nature and wildlife in their natural habitat. We didn't get to see any gators while we were there but the birds alone were fascinating. We also saw some turtles and fish. Great place to pictures too! Can be very humid though but it is Florida! lol

Awesome place. Tons of wildlife. We saw soft shell turtle, snapper turtle, egrets, herons, ibis, ducks, a rabbit, wood storks, variety of flora AND the biggest gator I have ever seen in person! At least 10 feet or more. Plus two other nice ones. Super cool park, free, kids had a blast. We will come back!!

Wakodahatchee Wetlands is not far from our home, so my husband and I go there often. His hobby is photography and he has gotten some breath taking photos at this wetlands. There are many large alligators, turtles, and so many different kinds of birds. There is a very sturdy, wide, wooden walkway out over the wetlands that offers an excellent... More

Very active preserve. Surprised at how close we were to wildlife (storks, egrets, red winged blackbirds, ibis, dragonflies, 4 types of turtles,,...). HUGE gator with 3'x2' head directly under us on boardwalk-watched him for 1 hr. Local said it was the largest he ever saw here! Recommend umbrella for shade. Couple of spots and a pavilion along the way provide... More

I have been coming here for more than 10 years. Depending on the time of year I am here dictates what types of wildlife I see. This past May (2014) I saw hundreds of storks nesting - feeding their young was an amazing sight. In one day I saw three alligators, several iguanas, rabbits, countless birds (storks, egrets, woodpeckers) and... More
