This is a jewel. Too many bird species to count, waterfowl, butterflies, trees, plants of all kinds. Well laid out, well maintained, used by daily power walkers, birders, and browsers like us. We were lucky enough to see baby birds in the nest, then watched as the mother fed them. If you don't mind the heat, now is a good... More

Great place to see wildlife. You start at a checkpoint. To go one way is a mile and other is half a mile. The pier like walking is great. Another free place to walk. The one thing I would stress is please respect the environment and pick up after yourself!

This is so delightful. So easy to get fit on a comfortable boardwalk. The wild life sights are enthralling. Both professional and amateur photogs enjoy together. Calming experience and feel one with nature. Leave your ringing phone home and take a camera. Great for kids. Enjoy

After going to the Wakodaharchee Wetlands, we decided to visit Green Cay. Totally different environment for bird/animal watching. Again, beautiful boardwalks to take you through the park.

Gators, birds, turtles, river otters and more. Take your cameras and explore the many varieties of south Florida birds. I have been going for a good few years.

Visiting here was suggested to me when I was at the Wakohatchee Wetlands which is nearby. Though the area seems to be much larger than Wakohatchee there were not nearly the number and variety of birds and other wildlife. It was a thrill to see an owl, there was a pair nesting not far from the walkway. The place is... More

A friend suggested this location for shooting photos of wildlife so went there on a Sunday to see. If you want to see a particular species check with a birder who can give you an idea of when they will be nearby. (3 weeks made a BIG difference in birds seen) The boardwalks are well maintained by the county and... More

Very nice area. Clean, easily accessible and free. Several species of plants, birds and even a few alligators. Worth the trip.
