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

we rode our bikes here from Hollywood beach and it was a very nice ride. There is a fire tower you can climb to the top and get a gorgeous view of the area.

This is a great way to spend a half day or day inexpensively with your family if you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy natural Florida. If you just want to spend some time wandering on the trails and viewing Hollywood from the Observation Tower, the visit is free. Entry to the museum is $2/person, and you... More

This wasn't fantastic, but a nice center with exhibit building, lots of info, 10 min video about the mangrove estuary, boardwalks and trails. There is an observation tower with an elevator so very handicap accessible. $2 makes this a great find. Saw mangrove tree crabs, fiddler crabs, iguanas, herons, birds, and much more! Bring water with you.

This is a very nice park with a observation tower, a couple of boardwalks through the mangroves and an unpaved pathway. I took advantage of all of those things and never saw a bird or any kind of wildlife. I'm pretty good at being patient and waiting for the birds and wildlife to show up, but after a couple of...

They have a few nature trails that lead you through the mangroves of the intercoastal. They have a guided boat tour that teaches all about the plants, fish and birds in the area. If you enjoy being outside, check this place out!

A joy to meander the pathways and be at one with nature. We would recommend a visit and go to the visitors center to read all about the area and the wildlife that is about. You can cycle, canoe and walk. A great observation tower with a lift is a must.

You can walk, rent a kayak, bird watch, it is really nice. We walked their from our hotel, I think it costs to park though.

This park is only seconds away from the beach. There are nice boardwalks and an observation tower which gives a nice view. There is a boat and some kayaks however they may only run at certain times since there was no one there on our recent visit. Although we didn't see any animals, we were lucky enough to see an...

The nature center is well done. The trails are a pleasant easy walk. It is a nice oasis in the middle of civilization.
