This nature park is a must go to for an afternoon stroll on their boardwalk. A very peaceful way to see nature at it's best. No one should miss this great county attraction.

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

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.
