Best for quiet walks on the nature trails. Not usually crowded unless the pavilion is hosting a wedding, then don't bother going there

At certain times of the year, you can enjoy guided midnight kayak paddles, get involved with sea turtles up close and personal and experience the inhabitants of the mangroves with one of the hall's regular programs. Check out their calendar and stop by for a walk on the trails to view some local wildlife. I am fortunate to live close... More

This is a very nice, quiet nature center. There are interesting exhibits in the museum, and the boat ride through the mangroves is very nice. The view from the tower is pretty impressive. Lots of trails to explore. It got very warm, so we limited our time spent walking them. Think about bug spray - there were lots of no-see-ums... More

We spent some time here on our vacation in south Florida. A great park and natural area to view natural Florida beauty. The park is very clean and well kept. The Nature Center has an observation tower to look out over the entire area. From the tower you can walk along a boardwalk trail with several look out points over... More

This is a great location to check out if you are visiting Hollywood, FL if you like the outdoors. They have a great kayak/canoe rental location and it is really quite beautiful. The nature center's staff is quite informative for the wildlife, and the animals are really awesome there. Check it out!!

Anne Kolb Nature Center is an oasis of nature in Boward Co. It's the only part of Hollywood Beach that remains in its natural state of mangrove forest. The forest and the open water and tidal areas provide a precious sliver of habitat for the fascinating creatures and plants that were here before the high-rise hotels. We spent an afternoon... More

Anne Kolb Nature Center is located at the north part of Hollywood Beach. It is really the only closest natural attraction in the area, so I was really surprised when the cab driver did not know how to get there... In any case, it was nice for a leisurely stroll. The mangroves are nice and you'll get to see tiny... More

This is a great way to spend time with nature and get away from crowds. You can wander the trails for free and take in natural Florida. They have a museum which we did not do, but the boat ride was fun. The guide could have been a little more informative, but it was a low cost boat ride. Can't... More
