Wonderful sights of birds, alligators, snakes, turtles all along this walking deck above the wetlands. Nature at its best. Bring your camera or use it for your daily walks as exercise.

Our first visit as we are new 12 month residents to the area. Definitely well worth going to see. Amazing if you TAKE YOUR TIME and walk slowly, remembering to stop at each post to learn from the short explanations/ illustrated boards or stop and observe whenever you wish. Also, it appears each season will have it's unique nature experiences. Be sure to bring binoculars if you have a pair. Free admission; restrooms at beginning of trail in building near where you park. Great for all ages and stages of wetland knowledge. Can't wait to go back; great break from " suburbia"; fortunate to have this in. " our own backyard"!

This is one of my very favourite wetlands to visit - a 3/4 mile boardwalk meanders through this compact little nature gem. Compliments to the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department for providing an environment that has become a haven for many species of birds and animals, and for making it available to the public free of charge! It's a ideal location for bird-watchers, photographers and people who simply enjoy walking on something other than cement!

Wakodahatchee is always top of my list for a visit when I am in the Delray Beach area, tucked away and very easy to miss on Jog Road. If you love to view birds and wildlife, there is always something to see - almost guaranteed alligator and great heron sightings . For some reason there are more sightings here rather than Green Cay which is a short distance away. Plenty of room on the board walk for a tripod, though people bouncing a lot on the walkways should make you choose a higher shutter speed. Benches and gazebos give you a place to sit down and just watch nature do its thing.

I often visit WW when visiting family in Delray Beach. I love walking through it and seeing all the wildlife in this amazing ecosystem. I also love to just sit in one of the gazebos, which I find to be so relaxing that it's almost spiritual. After visiting WW, my next stop is the Girls Strawberry Patch on Military Trail. Looks like just another store in a small strip mall but oh what a wonder awaits in the back!
