Marvelous place for bird watching and photography. Also alligators, iguanas, and more. Watch birds nesting and raising chicks. Many people use the boardwalk just for walking. Parking is limited in peak season (Jan-Mar) but there is never more than a 15-20 minute wait.

A zillion birds, a gator, turtles... Tranquil and peaceful. All year round the scenery changes. It's free and absolutely worth a visit.

Wakodahatchee Wetlands is one of our favorite places to go in Delray since we moved to South Florida nearly two years ago. It is peaceful, beautiful, and an easy walk on a one mile boardwalk. I had written a review previously but decided to update my review after returning to the wetlands yesterday. We had been to the wetlands only... More

We never get tired to going here and seeing the birds in their native habitat during their different phases of life. Wonderful place and so happy it isn't too far from where we live.

A great way to spend an hour. We saw a wide variety of birds, as well as alligators, iguanas, turtles, fish and more. The egrets and herons could be seen up close and it was amazing to see their nests (with babies) just 20 feet away.

There is no entrance fee for this park operated by Palm Beach County. As others have reported you can see many different animals that thrive in this man made wetland, Parking may be difficult during peak times associated with wildlife activity. However, there is an office building a bit south of the park along Jog Road and you might be... More

The Wakodahatchee Wetlands is a magnificent opportunity to see tropical birds, turtles, alligators, snakes, small fish, and other wild-life in their man-made wetlands habitat. Walk the mile-long boardwalk and, depending on the time of day and season, view species of ducks, egrets, herons (including the Great Blue), wading birds, and much more as they hunt, nest, mate and raise their...

If you have a couple hours to kill and you want to visit a very interesting and educational place to see local wildlife, this is the place to go and you will get some really good exercise. It is about 3 miles in length on a wooden pathway that is a few feet above the wetlands that consists of processed... More

A couple of hours to relax and enjoy the wild life is well worth it. We even saw several "gators" re;axing in the sun. The myriad of birds was impressive as well.
