  • Due to the tremendous amount of rain and storms it is completely grown up. So disappointed! The reeds have grown up to the walkway.

  • Really great place for bird spotting and other wild life such as a couple of alligators if you are lucky, water snakes, and turtles. It is FREE to visit and mostly consists of a decent boardwalk type peer that walks you out over the water and the marsh. There is also a three story tower at the end of the pier with telescopes in the top. On certain days early in the mornings, they have guided tours - but I have never attended one. I have just done the freestyle tour.
  • Beautiful area! We saw a few birds, but mostly grackles. We also caught a glimpse of "Boots," one of the gators that lives there. You can also see fish feeding, and different native plants. Would definitely go back!
  • What a majestic, beautiful and serene little spot to observe birds, ducks, egrets, herons, songbirds, migratory birds, as well as native plants and specimens that are all clearly marked. Even has a boardwalk and trail!
  • 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.
