It consists of a natural area with a complete wooden boardwalk located above a swampy area, populated with many creatures, but remember watching the alligators and birds most of all. I would have appreciated more shade but it seems there was very little of that. Well worth visiting.

I have visited many times, and I never grow tired of it. Walking along the boardwalk, seeing the many nesting birds, the water, everything is lovely.

Mother Nature as she originally made it. A migratory stop for all species of birds. (and an occasional gator or two) Especially interesting if you go during nesting and breeding takes place. Another wonderful place to take your out of state visitors

A beautiful man-made wetlands with a 0.5 mile board walk. My kids loved it here. We were able to see lots of birds in the dead of summer. Looking forward to returning to Wakodahatchee when the weather cools off. It's free. Peaceful. Paradise.

Nice little adventure. We loved seeing all the birds, turtles etc. No luck seeing any gaters. Probably best to go early in morning or dusk to see gaters!

One of several boardwalk nature walks in the area, this one offers the best for close-ups of nature at work, particularly the plentiful bird varieties.

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!
