My wife and I went here one afternoon and it was just stunning. The visitors center was a nice beginning of our tour and the attendants were very helpful, informative, and interesting. The meandering boardwalk takes you past all kinds of water, plant, and animal sites and is very relaxing. Get away from the hustle and bustle of your lives... More

My husband and I try to get there at least a couple of times a week in all seasons. We very often finish a hectic day with a late stroll. If you are lucky enough to be there at the end of the day it is an amazing sight to watch the flocks of birds return to nest for the... More

This is either a place for you to stroll through the best of the "almost" everglades or a place to bring the grandkids---once! It's peaceful and, in the earlier (or late) hours quite nice. In the summer, you're a flavorful snack for the mosquitoes. You'll see lots of local birds, turtles a fish or two. As far as alligators......there's one.... More

I have to say, if you are just taking a short trip, or going while the indoor displays are open during our hotter weather my title is accurate. The boardwalks are out in a lot of direct sunlight and can get tiresome for certain littler and older folks. Some people may exhaust from the heat on certain days down here... More

There is a peaceful feeling that envelopes you as you stroll through Green Cay. Take the time to become aware of your surroundings and you will find all sorts of interesting wildlife, and people who are willing to share their knowledge. It is a special place right in Delray, easy to get to.

This was the first time I visited Green Cay, and I was GREAT, the weather was a bit over cast and a little breezy which made it nice. We loved the butterfly garden as you walked up to the Nature Center. We saw quite a few birds & turtles, No alligators. We walked the entire boardwalk at a very leisurely... More

Lovely place, kids really enjoy going there. We often spot alligators and various types of birds and frogs. It's really nice before the dusk. Great place for an evening walk, especially in the hot summer months.
