Love this place! I come here every so often to take photos of the wetlands and its inhabitants - mainly the birds. I always see something different and I love that. Nature at its finest.

This is a true hidden gem of a place. A well planned and laid out overwater deck walkway through multiple wetlands with hundreds of native and migrating species of birds, waterfowl, turtles, alligators, fish, butterfly. I have often come back at different times of year to see different varieties of birds up close. It is well maintained, nice informational signs... More

As a photographer I am always looking for prime spots to capture my images. The Wakodahatchee Wetlands is just that. The 39 acre wetland is bustling with life and is home to many of Florida's native birds. The elevated boardwalk makes for easy traveling and is wheelchair accessible. The walk along the boardwalk is not too far for just about... More

We've lived here for over two years, and have driven by this place numerous times, but never stopped by. If you are in the area, and like birds, this is a must see. We saw numerous types of birds, and some were very close to us. All of the walk is on a boardwalk, and I think that it's about... More

This is great place that not a lot of people know about. You can see a lot of different kinds of birds. It's not a far walk. You can probably do it in 20 minutes unless you're taking your time and soaking it all in and taking lots of pictures like my wife and I did. We easily spent over... More

An amazing gem, a jewel for the bird lover, with long winding bridges that take you through wetlands where colorful birds sit, so appropriate to their environment it all seems staged. I visited in spring when purple flowers added to the beauty of the wetlands plants and everything from the avenue of Sabal Palms to the Live Oak was at... More

If you love wildlife, are a birder, or are a bird photographer, there is no better place to visit if you are in the Boca Raton area. I was visiting my dad in Delray Beach, and discovered this little gem of a wetland. It is man-made and teeming with life. The boardwalks are in good shape, and you never get... More

This wetlands on Jog Road in Delray came before Green Cay Wetlands on Hagen Ranch Road. It is a much shorter distance around but every bit as nice as Green Cay. Not as much parking as Green Cay, but enough. And the walk is pleasant. Have been there a few times. Worth the visit.
