  • This Wetland park is really neat. Lots of birds and open vistas. Interesting plants and animals. If you are visiting in summer, be sure to take rain gear, sunscreen, and bug repellent.  more »
  • This is a great place for birding and for photographing birds. I suggest you go in the winter months of January through May. That is the best time to capture the birds . Be aware there is a lot of wal...  more »

  • If you're looking for Florida wildlife, this place is incredible! They boast an incredible variety of birds, and birdwatchers and photographers come regularly to capture pictures of uncommon species. There are Gators, cranes, Hawks, raccoons, various snakes, and more. It is a long walk, but sometimes one of the volunteers will give tours on a golf cart. Very worth it.
  • Fantastic spot for Birding & Wildlife watching. You must be able to walk fairly long distances and there are a lot of gators. On Fridays & Saturdays they usually have a small tram bus you can ride (if walking long distances is an issue).
  • This is an amazing park that was man made and created to treat water. It is now open year round (used to be closed Nov - Jan). There is very little shade so be prepared. There are bathrooms and water fountain and pavilions at the entrance. Don't miss the overlook - you get 360 views of the park that are amazing. We rode our hybrid bikes and the roads are built up on the berms around the ponds and most are very well maintained. The northwest corner of the park had more grass growing up in the road making it more of a rough ride (would be fine on a mountain bike) and the views are not as good as the cattails are tall in June so you can't see as much. Very well marked paths. Tons of wildlife. Its a gem of a park.
  • This is a fantastic place to see wildlife -- especially birds, alligators and flowers. It is also educational to learn about how this vast man-made (and woman-made) wetlands is an experiment in how to use plants to cleanse 20 million gallons per day of treated sewage effluent. Hint: it is some of the clearest and cleanest water you will see in central Florida apart from the natural springs. The short drive from Orlando is well worth it.
  • This park is a gem. The City of Orlando did a masterful job making a sewer water cleansing project into a beautiful bird sanctuary with numerous well maintained walking and biking trails. Very impressive. NOt easy to find so watch closely for the turn off SR 50.
