This boardwalk was really well done. We got to see the underbrush of a Florida marsh in its dry state as well as the wildlife in a quiet river. It was really pretty, was a cool shady reprieve on a hot day. Too bad it...More

The boardwalk through the cyprus swamp was so interesting. Take the time to really look and listen. You can see so much before you even get to the creek at the end. The cyprus trees are huge. It is hard to imagine that loggers walked...More

What a beautiful spot and it's so close to Kissimmee. We saw alligators, birds, an osprey feeding it's young at the nest, lizards, butterflies, dragonflies, flowers and some huge old trees. Felt like we were seeing Florida before the Europeans arrived. There is a nice...More

Our family really enjoyed the nature walk. We saw seven alligators, and a few babies. Informational visitors center was great. We'll be bringing our homeschool friends back to visit!

Worth doing the tour with school age kids. You have to go down Poinciana Blvd. almost to the border and then turn right. There are signs along the way though.

Although only open to the public on most weekends, this place is worth the visit. It has an indoor museum but the real adventure is the boardwalk that goes into the woods and eventually out to Reedy Creek Swamp. Spring and Fall are the best...More
