A peaceful place to watch nature and enjoy your surroundings. I love to go when I want to clear my head or sort things out. It is close to nature but the sounds from the interstate and highway tend to be distracting for some. They have wonderful workshops regarding nature. Just a peaceful place close to my home that I...

It's a nature lover and photographer's delight and a MUST SEE for residents and visitors alike!! The trails and boardwalks are incredible and the wildlife is not to be believed!!! Just meander along at your own pace and feel like you could be anywhere. It's SO incredibly peaceful and spectacularly beautiful!!

Great place to get away from your busy life and enjoy nature Florida style. We packed a picnic lunch and ate at one of the many picnic tables by the water and then took the Eagle trail hike. It's short but is dirt with exposed rocks so not stroller or wheelchair friendly, but there is a boardwalk on the other... More

A Slice of the wild Everglades in a peaceful setting located in Northern Palm Beach County. Gators, fowl, fish and reptiles all combine to make your experience invigorating and memorable. Beautiful, peaceful and serene its such a nice getaway in the middle of a busy town.

Great place to see Florida and it's natural beauty in a quaint quiet setting. First visit saw multiple alligators, turtles, pig frogs, an owl and a variety of birds and plants including lilies as far as the eye can see. The huts with the rocking chairs were peaceful and inviting.

I went there to visit an exhibition of Highway Man Art, which was excellent. I do not consider myself to be a nature lover but I was shocked how beautiful this preserve was. I now go back often as it has a boardwalk that makes exploring easy and comfortable. I think this place is a must see!

Great place to get away and see wildlife and breathe fresh air. They offer monthly programs that are available on their website and at the kiosks at the preserve. They have canoe and kayak programs almost monthly, however, due to the preserve being 23 square miles as well as the watershed for West Palm Beach, they do not rent them... More

Grassy Waters isn't the best spot for viewing wildlife. But it's a nice spot to spend a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle. The boardwalk here is extensive, with some nice views. If you just want to get away from it all for a couple of hours, Grassy Waters is a convenient spot to do it.

Pack a picnic- this place is so tranquil- eat on the long Boardwalk- they have a spot or two. It is rarely crowded. We did a swamp day during Christmas time too- where you go in water and fish net- exciting for kids. Great place for winter small wedding if allowed booking parties.

I have stopped by this preserve many times and love it. The boardwalk into the wetland is very enjoyable and cool. I especially love the view along the waterways with the lilies and flowering water vegetation.
