The powers to be felt it was necessary to plant in most of the open water areas that most photographer get their photos from. Soon there will be very little open water for anyone to get a decent photo of the water foul that fly into Green Cay. The People that are in charge make you believe it is about... More

It was very peaceful there. I thought that the untouched trees/nature was beautiful. There are long walking trails with stops that have shades Gazebos to sit. It was quite hot, and I would advise bringing extra water.

I don't usually gush. I never go 'all the way' to 5 Stars. But this is the exception. If you have an hour, and a need to be in nature, this is as good as it gets. It is a beautiful place. You will see a 'natural setting' and flora and fauna that will leave you with a thirst for... More

Amazing preserved wet lands. My children 12,9,and 5 really enjoy coming here, especially going inside and seeing all of the animals there. Great spot for bird watching. We go here about once a month.

The birds are of all shapes and sizes and colors. Early in the season the birds are nesting and many people with big cameras to catch the babies breaking out the eggs. We also see alligators sunning themselves.

For those who just enjoy the outdoors and nature in general the extensive boardwalk system gives great access to the whole area. The caveat is that many individuals use the extensive boardwalk system for exercise walking.... More

Have been going here since it opened. What a deal! All the splendors of Florida in our backyard, and it is FREE! No entry fee, lots of free parking and you can walk all day among herons, moor hens, anhingas, egrets, alligators and much, much more.
