Finally got to visit this beautiful nature boardwalk late on a very hot afternoon. We were greeted by a gentleman who was a frequent visitor and he explained due to the excessive heat there wasn't much activity that afternoon . He said the park is usually full of birds, turtles and alligators. It was a little quite but still beautiful.... More

as I live in the area, I go there, once in a while to do my daily walking. Looking at nature while you walk beats my i-pod. Many, many different birds and wildlife. Alligators sunning themselves are always an eye catcher. As my running takes place on a boardwalk about 10 feet above the ground, there is no danger. Great... More

This is totally a great family trip of about one hour or so! Bird watching, maybe an alligator or two, photography, bioardwalk, benches, shade in some places, and free parking, too! On weekends, the parking can be filled so go early!

as i have guided many people around the 3 quarter mile boardwalk you will get to see many interesting animals and birds including large birds such as Anhingas, wood storks, Roseate spoonbills as well as Alligators,otters, turtles and if you get lucky maybe a bobcat it is a photographers heaven as also people use it for walking exercising.

This is a wonderful way to start or end your day. It is a beautiful walk on a wooden boardwalk through the wetlands where you can see lots of birds, turtles and spectacular flowers and plants. Well maintained! It is mostly in the sun though, so if it's hot, it will be toasty! Easy to park & free of charge.... More

When I visit Delray, I always go to Wakodahatchee at least twice during my stay. This place is absolutely gorgeous! A great place to walk and take in the fresh air, views and surroundings. I love bringing my camera and taking pictures of all of the birds, turtles, and gators!

The wildlife activity was interesting to witness. Give yourself an hour to walk around the boardwalk. Time for stopping and listening, and watching. One of the few places you can so much silence.

The boardwalk makes this very easy for walking and spotting many different kinds of birds large and small. I even saw a Painted Bunting at one of the feeders. It's best to come early in the morning or late afternoon/evening when the birds are roosting. I forgot my camera last time, so I will definitely be visiting again.
