  • The Daggerwing Nature Center really gives you a great glimpse at osprey, woodpeckers, butterflies, wood storks, alligators, and a wide variety of bromeliads. If you really like being out in nature, th...  more »

  • A great place to take a walk with nature. The boardwalk offers some spectacular views of native vegetation and environment. The viewing tower at the east end of the boardwalk allows you to see the trees and water from above. The Nature Center is a visually engaging education resource that gives stunning graphic illustration of the inhabitants of our South Florida environment and ecosystem. Great place to take the family - all ages.
  • I planned a Girl Scout troop field trip last summer here. Although my fault, I got the time wrong and we arrived an hour late. When I got there they said they put back the animals and would not bring them back out. We toured the floor and had 10 very sad girls on our hands. I then received a nasty email from one of the staff members the next day, I don’t think that was necessary. Sorry for being late, but staff not nice or empathetic. Won’t be going back.
  • Great nature boardwalk on the western edge of Palm Beach County's urban area. It's name comes from the Daggerwing butterfly which is frequently seen in the area. The nature center is in na massive regional park which has Golf course, water park and amphitheater. There are also numerousnature picnic tables and pavilions around the nature center and park. There is no admission fee for either area although the golf course and waterpark have admission fees.
  • To put it simply, it's a great, somewhat out of the way nature center and boardwalk trail to visit whenever it's open. Fair weather is recommended for visiting if you aren't the type to handle Florida heat. Also, be sure to hold onto your plastic bottles and other disposable things, as this is a natural area. Do not even think about carelessly dropping trash here, as it ruins the sightseeing experience, and is also illegal. Warm regards otherwise, though.
  • Beautiful nature trail. Lake with lots of 🐢 turtles and 🐟 fish.
