This park was a real find. The volunteer at the welcome center was so friendly. We walked the entire boardwalk and, boy, what a boardwalk! It stretches for about 2 miles and has several spurs that lead to isolated wetlands with overlooks. It must have cost a fortune to build but it really is a wonderful treat (Thanks, Lee County taxpayers!). There were many wading birds and waterfowl throughout the park as well as lizards, turtles, alligators, feral pigs, and an otter! In addition to the wild animals, the plants were fascinating and you can learn a lot about both in the self-guided walk booklet that is free at the trailhead.
