A wonderful wonderful place. Quiet and serene place with nice broadwalks (2 of them). A lot of birds and even some real alligators. We saw 3 of them but one of them was so-so close, about 5 feet only. Amazing:) Before that I was thinking that they are only speaking about them but no, they are actually exists IRL!:)

It was great to go here with my 90 yr old mother, but we also saw young children and every age in between. The nature center is wonderful and we got to watch a fascinating BBC film on the Galapagos in their small theatre which gave us a nice rest after walking the boardwalks. Saw a crocodile, lots of birds,... More

The toddler enjoyed it and so did the adults. It is so accessible and peaceful. We walked the mile lap and enjoyed the indoor exhibits, viewing baby alligators and ecology displays.

This place is free btw, so I think anyone with some time on their hands and in he area have nothing to lose. It's a very unassuming location off of Hagen Ranch tucked behind suburbs and offices. However as soon as you get into that veranda and it opens into the wetlands, man you feel you like you escaped from... More

I've been visiting Greencay for years. I recently moved back to Boynton Beach so now it's just a few miles away. But even when I lived in Loxahatchee (about a 70 mile round trip) I still visited a few times a year. Great boardwalk through the wetlands, pkenty of parking. Be sure to walk through the visitors center if its... More

Well this gem is adjacent to our community. There are beautiful wooden walking paths over ponds filled with ducks, turtles and an amazing array of magnificent birds. You might see an occasional alligator also. Avid bird watchers congregate daily while those of us that choose to exercise in this nature heaven move about in a serene and peaceful environment. This... More

I've driven by this sign countless of times going to work everyday on Jog Road and who would know a humble sign that looks like just another entrance to a condo subdivision would actually be a secret wetland sanctuary taking you away from the suburbia life of Delray?? The place is free and near a water recyling facility. It is... More

Looking for something fun to do for the afternoon. We had a nice lunch in Delray beach and pulled up some places to see. Decided on Green Cay. We arrived and really didn't want to leave. It was beautiful, well maintained and loaded with nature. We saw so much and many birds and creatures up close. The little sitting areas... More
