This is by far one of our favorite places to walk, sit, watch the large birds hatch their young, and marvel at this Beautiful large bird paradise. There are benches galore and the boardwalk keeps you up close and personal With blue blue herons, anhingas, marsh hens, turtles, alligators and cormorants. We love this place!

great place to take a long walk on a wooden boardwalk as you walk through a bird sactuary and the wet lands. Can also be a nice place to do power walks and see nature
