Very Enjoyable. I Vist Often.

Much and varied wildlife to be seen. The boardwalk is convenient to the parking lot and is about 1-1/2 miles long. Parking is very limited, however.

If you like nature, you're sure to like this nature walk You will see alligators, all kinds of birds and lizards.The walk is a pleasant one and descriptions of the birds trees and different wild life will be on plaques describing what you are looking at. It's an enjoyable couple of hours, but wear comfortable walking shoes or sneakers.

Go at 4:00 pm from Mid January to March to see amazing birds, turtles and one lazy 8' alligator. Bring camera and binoculars if you have them but many birds within a few feet

One of the nature treasures in Delray. Good place for kids, grandparents and adults. Best in early morning or at dusk - more birds. You'll commonly spot large and/or small gators. Keep your eyes pealed to see iguanas in the trees. There are occasionally marsh rabbits. A nice stroll on the elevated board walk. Wonderful! Some people do the loop... More

Tucked between tract homes (but visually free from them) lies a preserve that features birds of all types, turtles, grasslands, water and the alligators that love it. A raised boardwalk takes you on a half mile walk around the wetlands where you can sight herons, ibis, ducks of all sorts, anhingas and on our last visit, roseate spoonbills. We even... More

What a great place for a walk on a nice day. Saw all kinds of herons and their hatchlings. Different water birds and turtles too. Two Alligators also made an appearance.

They have an elevated trail but its pretty much in the natural state. If you like birds and lots of water birds, bring your bug spray, suntan lotion, and camera. The weather is perfect 70 to 80 degrees, thats night to day.

Visiting the area for the first time recently, I wanted my marine biology college student to see some things of interest. It was a cool day, the place was not too crowded (a Friday around midday), and the boardwalk thru (what I believe are) manmade wetlands was an ideal way to see Florida nature up close. Saw lots of turtles... More

Beautiful place. Always see lots of birds, usually gators. As the seasons change, I love to see first the nests, then the babies.

Spent an hour or so on the boardwalk and was very impressed by the number and diversity of birds. A lovely spot amid a rather built up area.

Thank ChrisFromNJ
