Myself and my wife love to walk the boardwalk for exercise and view the wildlife. The grandkids enjoy it as well. They also the enjoy the building housing information about reclamation of water and some small live animals.We have been going here for years.

One walks into another world at Green Cay. There are different varieties of birds and animals...including alligators. Have no fear, you are walking on a boardwalk set high above the water.

We always like to take the grandkids to green cay to look at the baby alligators and the frogs inside. It is also a good experience to walk around the wetlands and see nature.

This place is incredible. No fee to walk the raised boardwalk. There are 2 boardwalks.....a half mile or a mile loop. See lots of water fowl and other birds in their natural habitat. Absolutely wonderful. Meet Oliver.... an Eastern Screech Owl outside the gift shop.
