  • It is so nice to stroll along the boardwalk. The swamp is full of alligators, birds, fish and dragonflies. The visitor's center is attractive and well-maintained. I wish we had set aside more time for this miniature Everglades.
  • Nice walking, couldn't rate 5 stars because of smell near bathrooms - must need some better ventilation or something. Went early in the morning, there were lots of older folks walking for excersize, not sure if later in the day would have less older folks irritated with you getting in their way or not. The wetlands themselves seem very well maintained and there is lots of wildlife to see.
  • It is a beautiful place to walk. This nature preserve has few birds. You can enjoy the flea and fauna.
  • 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.
  • This is a great place for short walk. There is a boardwalk and plenty of nature to see. Bird watchers love this place!
