To me it's the best nature center in the area. The "boardwalks" make it easy to have a good view on many of the many birds and other animals making the park their home.

We love going to " the cay " early in the am or later in the am during the summer month when it is not so hot and in the winter month, any time of the day is great! The walks are easy and accessible for wheelchair bound people. The nice thing is, sometimes you can see 20 - 30... More

Perfect for bird watching and photography. Try to go when birds are in "residence". Be certain to use sunscreen.

Make sure you go when Marty or Bonny are onsite as your Docent. They will give you a magical experience. Walking above a swamp, you'll see alligators, turtles, fantastic birds and foliage. You won't want to leave.

My boyfriend took me here for one of our first outings. The path is about 1.2 miles. There are birds, crocadiles & other wildlife. It's very beautiful. Bathroom facilities at the main building. Very nice & safe.

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
