“Great time - Lots of wildlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Such a wonderful visit here! We saw gators up close, turtles, fish and lots of interesting birds. It is a really beautiful peaceful place. I highly recommend it.

“Great Nature Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is our first winter in South West Florida and although I said I visited in March of 2013 this was only one of several visits we made this winter. It is very inexpensive, a parking fee of $1 per hour is the only charge. The board walk makes it, not only wheelchair accessible it also makes it very easy walking and the hand rail makes it quite safe for children. We have toured the boardwalk during school visits and although the children are a little noisy we find it as much fun to watch the children making their discoveries as it is for us to spot the wild life. It seems each time we go we see some thing different, and watching the birds returning in the evening to roost is phenomenal. Although we checked it was a family visit it was just my wife and I but we shared the boardwalk with many families and again, we enjoy watching the children enjoying themselves.

“Very special place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Take the one mile boardwalk through this magical place. The beauty of the slough is amazing and the kids will not be "bored" as they help look for all the wildlife. Hard to have a great experience for only a buck or two (parking is only fee)

“a nice park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

best to arrange your trip when guided tours are given. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We didn't see any wild life, however.
