Worth the time to visit.

Beautiful place. Lots of walkways. Wonderful educational materials inside the building. Can be a hot sweaty walk in the summer.

There's a 1 mile looped board walk and a .5 mile looped board walk. Both are fairly flat and give you great views of animals in their natural habitats. You'll see birds, turtles, fish, and crocodiles. There's a visitor center, but it was closed this time we went. Bathrooms are located outside the visitor center, so those were still accessible.

We love this place. It's what Florida was probably like before condos and retirees like me invaded. It is an oasis. A paradise of wonderful flora and fauna. A great place to walk and enjoy the wonders of nature. We go here often as we live about 10 minutes away.

Took the grandchildren to see the living exhibits. Great fun to see nature without having to travel.

This is an approximately 1 mile loop along a boardwalk through a wetland nature preserve. While the types of wildlife will vary depending on the day, there are many possibilities here. The boardwalk is mostly level with benches and shade at reasonable intervals. There is free parking and a visitor center. At the entrance, there is a butterfly garden and... More

This pleasant nature center offers two walks which can be combined if you choose. Parking was good. The walk is suitable for all ages, but if you are looking for a strenuous hike, this is not it.

beautiful wildlife & plants. Great in the morning before it gets too hot as mostly in the sun and walkway is elevated above the marshes.

The negative reviews are unwarranted. This an incredible place to go especially for birding.frequent sightings of the Painted Bunting near the front of the visitors center at the feeders. The visit and parking is free! (look for the hidden lion in the boardwalk)

The green Cay broad Walk is very nice, but there was hardly anything to see. A few birds Egrets and ducks swimming. We liked Wakodahatchee wetlands in Delray Beach much better. There is a lot more to see there.
