I would recommend visiting when it is below 90 degrees. Otherwise, it is way too hot. Pretty surroundings with a nice observation tower that even has elevator access.

How many times have you driven by and ignored the sign identifying the nature center? Stop in and get the insights on our local species and environment. Learn a little about the Eco systems in our neighborhood and how they have served residents of Broward for centuries. Plenty of hands on, active exhibits for the kids to enjoy and experience....

This is such a great park. It has excellent facilities with an amazing amount of information provided. I have had a chance to speak with the park manager who was very friendly and helpful. There are great trails and even a boat ride. The center is fabulous. There is also a dock and plenty of boardwalks meandering throughout the park.... More

How refreshing to find a large swath of wild so close to the landscaping and manicuring of the beach area. The mud flats path, on a early Monday morning, offered quiet and much wildlife activity. The view from the tower was delightful as was the bird and butterfly watching, and the tower itself provides stair or elevator access. A great... More

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
