  • 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 ...  read more »
  • I got up early yesterday to bring my mother-in-law (67), son-in-law (24), and my two sons (16 and 9) out for a walk in a natural setting. We were amazed by the abundance of wildlife. The number of bir...  read more »

  • I love going to this place it's clean peaceful and staff is gracious. I bring a picnic lunch and then we go on the trolley ride its about a hour the best part. Yep bring hat and water it is worth it and my favorite word its Free
  • Great place to do bird watching. I only saw one small gator who disappeared. Probably a good thing. I got some great photos of great heron.
  • Always a favorite stop of my husband and I, the Orlando Wetlands consists of miles of dirt trails through scrub or around the bodies of water. On several occasions, while taking the trail to the left through the scrub, we have seen families of deer, a variety of species of birds (my husband says it’s a birder’s paradise!), and an armadillo. Along the right trails that circle around the water we will always see more birds, alligators, and turtles. No matter which way we go, there are tracks; raccoons, large cat prints, and so many more! I do recommend shoes, though… There are shells mixed into the sand, and one time, while not in closed-toed shoes, I was bit by a spider. The public restrooms at the entrance are next to a large pavilion with picnic tables and both are well-maintained. There is also a small one-room education center adjacent to the dirt parking lot.
  • Overall pretty good. It's free and definitely full of nature. Don't forget your water! Got a little lost their, isn't much direction to where you are going.
  • This is a gem of Orange County. There are hundreds of wading birds here, and if you want to see an alligator, this is the place to go. There are many miles of trails through the park, and there's a marshy wonderland all around you. Around the edges there are forests that are great places to find songbirds as well. On the weekends there are wonderful volunteers that can drive you around the park. See birds, deer, river otters, bobcats, turtles and all kinds of wildlife here.
