Great photo opportunities. for birds. Did not see any alligators, but a few large turtles. Surprised how crowded it was. Had to wait for a parking space.

While the name is almost unpronounceable, the nature and photography can render one speechless. One of the best times to go if you are interested in photography is at dusk. There are all kinds of birds, alligators and other animals, as well as natural flora. The walkways are generally raised, making it a safe way to be a part of... More

Lots of birds, mostly water birds and they change with the season. This trip there are Wood Storks, Ibis, Roseate Spoonbill, Herons, Egrets, Anhingas and at lest that many varieties I don't know the names. There are many gators, even a few Turtles. I didn't see a single frog. With all the rain everything is lush, very green, the water... More

If you like seeing thousands of water birds all in one place, up close, many of them nesting, feeding their young, building their nests, coming in to roost, then this is the place to visit. Herons, Egrets, Ibis varieties, Cormorants, Gallinules, Wood Storks, Anhingas, and more. Alligators too! This is an extraordinary place and easy to walk around on the... More

Every time I go here I see something different - Great Blues mating, building nests or raising their babies, Gators eating turtles or flying for fish, Blue Ganules climbing stalks....there are so many birds I couldn't list them all here, it's a phenomenal place. The marshes change per season, but usually they are lush and full. It's an easy boardwalk... More

I was so surprised when I came upon this hidden treasure. I couldn't imagine such an unusual place hidden by a water treatment plant. This is a beautiful nature walk that has all kinds of native plants and animals. Not only was the place lovely but the people we met on the trail was so nice and helpful at explaining... More

A simple, beautiful slice of nature. A board walk through marshes and wet lands, with the opportunity to see amazing birds, turtles, alligators, and more. And it's free! Great for out-of-town visitors.

great place to walk and watch nature in its basic state. Picture taking is a must but be patient, the good ones will come.

Nice and serene. Went to check it out for when our grandchildren visit. Definitely will take them there. Great setting and a great place to take pictures. We forget what nature is all about. It like seeing the Everglades without going to the Everglades. Hard to believe it is located in the middle of developments around it. Great for bird... More
