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.

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.

This place is so cool, especially for people who loves birds. Great place for photographers too. No ticket required. When entering from the main entrance start from your left which is boardwalk.

The boardwalk is large and well maintained. Staff is friendly. Good chance to see several birds, alligators and in rare sightings even otters. Only down side is that bird watchers and power walkers sometimes are at odds with one another.
