Wonderful outdoor activity if you like walking or just sitting and watching the wild life!

You will love this on a cool day! Not a lot of shade on the board walk. Great for bird watching. Water fowl and alligators in abundance.

This was such an unexpected pleasure in the middle of a bustling residential area. The elevated walkways provide an eye-to-eye, closeup view of nesting birds. Egrets, Herons, Stork, Coots and more. Take your GOOD camera and do not miss this FREE attraction!

We went to visit this wetland two different times. We were fascinated by the nesting Woodstorks. I had never seen them. They stand 52 inches tall and are very devoted pairs. This is a very well laid out Boardwalk for people with all kinds of physical limitations to visit with great ease. You will not be disappointed with all there... More

I'm not sure why this magical place is not the #1 tourist attraction in S. Florida. I've been visiting for years and only recently discovered that the most spectacular time to go there is early April to mid-May. The number of nesting birds is staggering. Wakodahatchee is a wonder at any time of the year but April/May is so special... More

We came here to see whether or not we could see nesting water birds. A few years ago we saw large numbers of great blue herons and wanted to see them again. This time, we saw a few herons, but many wood storks nesting. It was really unique to be able to see these beautiful nesting birds up close, new... More

So many wild birds, with babies in their nests. Lots flying overhead. Beautiful boardwalks the whole way. Great place to view wildlife in a compact, convenient setting. A number of species of birds, alligators, turtles, lizards and a cotton mouth snake. Bring your camera. Handicapped accessible the entire way.

We are birders and really enjoyed (and were surprised by) the abundance of wildlife at this place! We saw Tricolored Herons, Moore Hens, Large Purple Marshhens, Blackbellied Whistling Ducks, Purple Ganenules, American Coots, nesting Wood Storks, Egrets, etc. The reason I gave this place a lower rating is the lack of parking. We were there during a busy Spring break... More

If you are a lover of nature this is your place. All kinds of wildlife to see here. They have a long boardwalk that takes you through the wetlands.

The birds were amazing. Lots of storks in trees with their little fluffy cotton-ball babies, all squawking away. Florida birds of every kind + beautiful flora - even gators too-
