  • Out of the three outside parks in this area, this is the largest and the most well kept. Plenty of wildlife and birds for a photographer, and on a sunny day, alligators even come out to sun. Great pla...  more »
  • We had friends visit and asked to go back to Green Cay. The place is a gem. Much wildlife to photograph, flat easy to walk elevated board walks and options to walk two different paths (loops) or both ...  more »
  • Nice boardwalks above marshy areas with wild birds,turtles,alligators,fauna,etc. Bring a good camera,binoculars, and a hat to shield the sun or for me my balding head,lol. 
  • Nice place to come for a short walk in the outdoors. Good for people that enjoy birds. It's a good idea to bring an umbrella if you want to avoid the sun. There are three trails all elevated at .5, 1 and 1.5 miles. Visitors staff is helpful. No cost to park or enter.
  • This place is amazing. Get there before sunrise and wait for the gate to open. You will not be disappointed. Green Cay is just so full of wildlife! An easy walk on the elevated boardwalk, from .5 to 1.5 miles with places to stop and sit.
  • One of my very favorite places to visit. It has a nice nature center, and a great boardwalk (a mile and a half of it) to watch wildlife, such as gators, snakes, plenty of birds, turtles, bobcat, and even river otter (those I didn't see, but my boyfriend did, so jealous...). Plenty of people go there just for exercise, while many bring their cameras to take pictures. My boyfriend and I usually do both.
  • This is a great place to see Florida as it once was. This wildlife conservation area was built by the Palm Beach County water department on a former farm to reclaim water and provide a safe haven for wildlife. There are many boardwalks, some with covered canopies so you can duck in from the sun or a passing shower. Plan to spend some time in the visitor center for some education on wildlife.
  • No matter what time of year you visit you will always see something unique, new and exciting!
