A treasure in the mist of a city. Great place for a nice walk, go around twice for extra steps and you see more the second time around. What a legacy for the family, thank you so much for this gift.

Wide vista of restored wetlands, plus a very informative nature center. Wonderful place to walk and observe birds, turtles and alligators. Best time is early in the day or later in the evening when it's cooler

Beautiful, quiet, peaceful walking area all on Boardwalk platforms, several variations of the walk, one longer than the other. Birds bountiful but not so many others....once saw an allegation, another time other large turtles....don't go for the wildlife, go for the natural beauty.
