I liked it better without the guide. We used to go years ago before it was "Florida." We could walk along and see all sorts of wildlife. Now the guides talk so much, the wildlife stay away.

absolutely beautiful nature walk through the swamp and more exotic animals than you can count! Facilities and places to stop and eat a packed lunch at picnic tables over the water. Boardwalk trail so stroller friendly!

This natural area in the middle of a growing residential and shopping center community, is a sight to behold. There is a very nice boardwalk over a beautiful cypress slough to view what has been preserved through a land gift. The cypress trees are magnificent. The water is as pristine as it gets.

We have been here several times and find it to reflect what much of Florida looked when we first moved here. The flora and fauna is ever changing depending on the time of day or year. You never know what you might see. It is worth the hours walk.

An excellent place to have picnic and walk while taking in the beautiful sights. Even for the least outdoor incline person it will be enjoyable. The boardwalk is shaded, it's quiet, it's interactive and you are able to get guided tours that will teach you about the wildlife that it's found in the swamp.

It was a nice park that had a boardwalk and had a very nice interpretive center. It can be busy but there is still quite a bit of wildlife to see. The one downside is it is close to both Daniels Parkway and Six Mile Cypress Parkway so the road noise can sometimes be distracting.
