This was a pleasant surprise as I heard about it just before leaving home for my Florida vacation. Numerous birds, turtles, and a few alligators. Bring your camera if you like photographing birds. I was able to get more nice shots of birds in a couple of hours here than on the rest of my vacation put together. Nicely kept... More

If you want to see animals and habitat native to Florida this is a great place to spend some time at! There are different paths around the boardwalk that you can take, depending on how far you want to walk. There are lots of different birds, turtles, fish, insects, iguanas, rabbits, gators and more to see on your walk! This... More

While this boardwalk could be too tame for rambunctious children, it is lovely at any time of day for those who like bird watching and seeing a flowering wetlands as they change throughout the year. Bring an umbrella in the hot weather if you need protection from intense sun!

An easy boardwalk walk through a preserve that is full of birds and other wildlife. The birds are almost close enough to touch and it is handicap accessible. Parking is free and you may even see an alligator. It is only minutes from King's Point and the turnpike. A cool urban oasis with great photo opportunities.

It was overcast and breezy when my wife and I strolled along the boardwalk this day. Therefore we didn't see any basking turtles. And we only saw a single alligator, a six footer sprawled in the mud. But we did see a few dozen birds -- cormorants, anhingas, egrets, ducks, moorhens, and all manner of herons (great blues, little blues,... More

They are doing construction there right now. But it's a wonderful place to walk, early in the morning, viewing foliage, different bird species, aligators, turtles, etc. It's well populated and there are many nature lovers, photographers who wait for the perfect picture.

Easy location, free parking and beautiful. Wonderful area in middle of build up suburban area that tries to indicate the beauty of the natural terrain of interior south east Florida. The area has a well maintained wooden path that is handicapped accessible with multiple rest stops and benches on the path. I walked the path yesterday and saw a variety... More

Great escape from the suburban doldrums. Hidden on Jog road just north of Kings Point is an oasis of nature, wild birds, flora, fauna and alligators. All tied together on a beautiful Boardwalk this area is kid and handicap friendly. A great stroll.

Try to go as often as possible since it's local. I love to get my walking in and see the birds and frogs and sometimes even a Alligator. Would reccommend to anyone who has not been there- It's free making it a super home run
