Its hard to describe an experience that's so in contrast to the 'normal' Florida experience i.e. beaches, crowds and concrete. This is a tranquil experience in close approximation to birds ( many species), turtles and plants. Its revives the soul to spend an hour or more walking the elevated path in these very special wetlands.

The boardwalk through the wooded/water area was wonderful. In the middle of the water in various were island areas filled with trees, bushes, and hundreds of birds. Wherever you looked there were birds nests with eggs or baby birds clamoring for food. We also saw turtles and alligators. There was so much to see in a relatively small area. I... More

A wonderful outside excursion to enjoy birds,ducks and fish in their natural environment. You are walking on boardwalk which is also great exercise in the sunshine.

The first time i saw my first wild spoonbills, today the wetlands were covered with nests of Egrets, Commorants, Anhinga etc. and brimming over with baby birds hatching out and being fed by their parents. The boardwalk is an easy... More

This is a great place for a stroll to see nature up close and personal. I think it is open 7 days a week and is free. This is unlike the wetlands in my area of Florida, which are nice, too. There were different plants, sort of bushes in the water, upon which many birds were nesting. This was a... More

Within an easy drive from the beach & shops this lovely wetland oasis was saved from the development of condos and golf courses. A little of old Florida with tons of birds & turtles and a well maintained boardwalk you can stroll or brisk walk for your heart! Check the hours of the visitors center as they are only open... More

I always enjoy a visit to the wetlands. Best time is early morning and late afternoon. Lots of bird species, alligators, turtles, etc. Very worthwhile.
