We spent Saturday afternoon walking the boardwalk enjoying the scenery. We we really surprised by all the different birds we saw. There are a lot if birdwatchers with smazing cameras taking in the bird habitat. They are all very friendly and willing to share their knowledge of the species seen. We actually saw a Roseate Spoonbill.

Terrific stop - free, about a mile long board walk through wetlands, you almost always see an alligator or two, amazing birds, and just great to get some fresh air. Whether you're an avid photographer or just craving a nature walk - it's ideal for a 30-60 minute escape into nature. Ample free parking and easy access to the boardwalk.

So interesting to see the wildlife in Florida. We were able to see many types of birds, fish, alligators and iguana. The locals are very helpful in spotting the animals. It's a beautiful nature walk.

This is a smaller version of Green Cay. The birding and photo opportunities can be just a great as Green Cay. The facilities aren't as nice, but this is a great little hidden gem. Definitely worth a visit. There is always s good chance at spotting an alligator or two, lots of egrets and herons. I even saw a couple... More

A good pair of sneakers makes the walk real enjoyable. If you go early in the morning you can sometimes catch a few bob cats as well as all the birds, gators etc. However anytime of the day makes for a pleasant walk.

My wife and I frequently take visitors to Wakodahatchee in Delray Beach, because it is always an interesting wildlife treat, especially at this time of the year. There are almost always an alligator or two, great blue herons, anhingas, turtles, and other wildlife to see in a very condensed area. The boardwalk hike (about 1/2 mile) is great when the... More

This was our first visit to Wakodahatchee. We usually go to Green Cay, but friends said this was better. Well, we had a very pleasant walk around the boardwalk and did see alligators, turtles, and lots of birds. But, unlike Green Cay, there is no nature building, the boardwalk could use a face lift and the parking lot is horrible.... More
