  • Well kept, lots of wildlife & the alligators are amazing!
  • This is a nicely done modest wetlands bird sanctuary. You walk past a little path lined with carefully planted local flora, and then out onto a boardwalk viewing area. I recommend going to the top of the lookout for a great view of the overall park and a good photo op. We spied heron, other bird species diving for fish, pelicans, and coypu (a cute name for aquatic rats). Yes, an unpleasant odor permeates the air, but you probably won't be here for more than 20 minutes.
  • Soooo many beautiful birds! Walkway very accessible plus great observation tower. Late afternoon visit excellent and we saw one alligator.
  • Nice shorter boardwalk and watchtower. Alligator, herons, pelicans.
  • We got to see the alligator!!!!!
