  • Bird watchers, nature photographers, alligator and turtle devotees will love this place. There is an indoor facility with exhibits, lectures and rest rooms. Plenty of free parking.

  • 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.
  • A quiet walk through a nature sanctuary in the midst of suburban sprawl. The mornings are bustling with Seniors power walking along the boardwalk, evenings, more laid back as photographers capture many species of birds through their lenses. The scenery and wildlife slightly different with each visit, but always beautiful. One of my favorite places to watch the sun rise or set.
  • I was hesitant to write a positive review because this place is awesome and I don't want it to get too popular. But wow I love this place! Great place to take a date ;). Tons of different wildlife species. Birds, turtles, plants. I've seen alligators and other lizards on occasion.
  • One of South Florida's hidden little treasures! Beautiful stop to pack a lunch and enjoy nature with the family!
  • Great walk and wildlife. If you can find the alligator with a broken jaw you get a free cookie by me.
