wonderful boardwalks through a very serene area. Saw a couple of alligators, unusual birds and turtle. Interesting plaques explaining what you are seeing.

Went with my mom and toddler. We walked the mile-long boardwalk amongst many cypress trees (Cypress Trail). The interpreter at the center was very friendly and kept all our interests with the painting exhibit for Black History Month, spotting gators in the telescope, calling frogs with marbles... and more.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit Florida as it appeared 100 years ago. Perfectly preserved seas of saw grass with hiking /biking trails, lakes , ponds, fishing , kayaking including picnic tables and native huts for shelter in the rain. Don't miss this hidden nature treasure.

I went here with a photography class and it was beautiful. The class spent about 2 hours photographing the nature trails, lake, birds and sunset. Well worth the very short trip from West Palm Beach.

The boardwalk is .6 mile through the preserve. There are rocking chairs along the way. I stopped to enjoy the fresh air and warm breeze. We didn't see many birds that day but a lot of nests, so they're out there. The nature center was a hit with the kids. The man working was friendly and helpful.

This is a place every kids should be familiar with. The board walk is safe and it is so relaxing for the adults while the kids run and explore. The staff has tours that we plan on taking part of in the near future. Every time we go we see something great.

What a fabulous nature preserve. Exotic birds galore amidst a pristine natural Eco system! Thatched roof huts with benches below give you a special corner to sit in silence and reflect (or not). Definitely a hidden gem! Would have considered it to be heavenly if it were not for a select few misbehaved children running around screaming and crying while... More
