  • One of my favorite parks around. A boardwalk that is a mile and a half long offers an easy access to observe and experience a great variety of wildlife such as alligators, turtles, and a huge amount of different birds. The Nature Center staff and volunteers are friendly and welcoming and always happy to answer questions and the Center itself is clean and offers a great amount of information about wetlands and nature.
  • It's a unique experience for those not familiar with how Florida is in many areas (and mostly used to be in that area before developments and farming rolled over it). Well, unique except for the similar Wakodahatchee Wetlands nearby, another great PBCWUD nature attraction. On a nice day, it's a great way to get outside and walk and see some nature. My son (5 now) has always enjoyed it - and while seeing a gator is indeed the highlight, he likes seeing all sorts of wildlife. They have a building with some exhibits and a film or two - it's usually pretty good - the hours of the building itself are a little weird, so check ahead of time if you want to do more than take the nature walk. Excellent parking - really good (better than Wakodahatchee Wetlands).
  • No other nature walk delivers for me the way this boardwalk does. It is a bird watcher's paradise, a photographer's jack-pot a nature lovers's dream and nature's gift. What a wonderful way to marry natural use land with practical use for us. Pretty special!
  • I love going there never know what surprises you will see. Good for education for children and how to respect nature and not destroy.
  • Peaceful, abundant nature. Very relaxing, pristine. Natufe rules.
