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.

Egrets birds and birds having babies in nest all over the place.Watch mother birds feed their babies. This is a place like none other.You walk on a boardwalk over water that is filtered by an echo system of many different species of plant life. If it is turtles and alligators you want to see, this is the place.Bring your camera.

Can only say that if you love birds, go to Wakodahatchee and if need to walk it also satisfies that need. I left out the best part, which is don't forget to take pictures because you will have the opportunity to observe the real Florida flora and fauna.

First it Free!!! Take a walk on a raised boardwalk through a beautiful natural habitat. This gem has been seen as one of the best wastewater natural areas in the country. Great spots for camera bugs. Experts from all over the world have visited here. You can be next.

This is definitely a wonderful place to visit while in Delray Beach. No charge for parking or admittance fee. But the beautiful scenery of all the different wildlife is great. There is a boardwalk and lots of places to rest if you need it and for picture taking.
