Nature up close and personal!

Seems like there is always something new to see. Nice walk. Stood directly over a large alligator. All sorts of animals to be seen.

This is an oasis of peace. Perfect for an early morning walk to see and enjoy some of what Florida has to offer. Birds, plants, maybe even an alligator. Very clean and even educational.

Green Cay Nature Center and Wetlands is a perfect place to go when family and friends are in town visiting or simply just to take a nice stroll by yourself. Florida is very unique for different types of plant and animal species that live in biodiverse habitat. The Green Cay captures that perfectly. There's a beautiful boardwalk winding in and... More

Walk the boardwalk in the early morning up until about 9 am. Plenty of parking but it fills up fast. There are nice boardwalks, one is a half mile loop and the other is one mile. Lots of smaller birds, an alligator or two and some other wildlife. Very enjoyable. We also recommend Wakodahatchee to see the bigger birds.

This is a free great nature walk. This elevated boardwalk is approximately one mile long and is very easy for everyone! There are families with children, couples, individuals getting their exercise and everyone enjoying a beautiful (free) experience. There are hundreds of birds and the occasional alligator!

Just a great place to walk with nature. Spot the birds, etc. I am a photographer so I loved taking pictures. Many birds I have never seen. Bring your own drinks & a hat if it's a hot day. There is lots of parking and no charge to walk this great place.

Bird life over all was poor with a lack of most ducks and total shortage of large waders. usually a good place to spend a morning or late afternoon but over the past 3 years has slipped bad.

A friend introduced me to this place last weekend and I am blown away. Not just a fascinating visitor center, but this small wetland/nature center has a mile and a half of wide, tidy boardwalk through the wetlands. So many birds and other creatures including a couple of baby alligators. We spent more than an hour and could have stayed... More
