“Sweet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is not a crowded place to visit the original Florida nature. Just a sweet place to go. Lots of gentle walks and more trails for the enthusiastic.

“A lovely walk through the woods”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

The boardwalk takes you through a variety of habitats in the preserve, with plenty of wildlife to see. At one pond saw many birds and 25-30 alligators. Later, 2 water moccasins curled up together. Since you're safely above the creatures, you can enjoy the close-up views.

“peaceful oasis in busy area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Quiet boardwalk about 1 1/4 miles. Small gators. Cormorants. Anhingas. If you return to the largest pond about dusk many birds return. Interesting displays in the information center. Free admission. Pay only for parking.

“Natural cure for high blood pressure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

I said there should be a cuff so people can take their blood pressure going in - and again going out. I can almost guarantee it will be lower once experiencing this walk in nature. It was so peaceful and still. While we didn't get to see Big Al (the alligator) we did see turtles, birds, fish and two snakes intertwined sleeping on a log. The trees and flowers and water in themselves made the journel worth while. A 'slough' is considered a type of swamp yet this water was crystal clear. As we were leaving a volunteer asked if I'd enjoyed it and I said most definitely. He smiled and said 'you'll be back - no one can come here only once'. You know what? He was right!

“Good place to see old Florida”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This easy boardwalk takes you through the cypress swamp and gives you an idea of what the Seminole Indians saw years ago.
You will probably see large alligators.
