Great boardwalk trail. lots of scenery and wildlife!

Well maintained boardwalk- very easy to walk. Excellent spot for birding, saw several alligators and turtles.

Nice and relaxing! Try to go later in the day when it’s not too hot!

absolutely loved this trail. I walked around it twice. it's about a mile loop. so much to see and it helps they have signs up with the different types of animal species there. it helped me identify a few. I highly recommend!

very pretty park! Lots to see! especially birds and their nests. it started pouring on me during my walk so I was trying to get back to my car. but I definitely recommend this trail. it's about .7 to walk around.

Beautiful place for scenic views- not much speed walking can be done when there is so much nature to observe

birds were nesting right by the boardwalk with their chicks. So cool.

Have been numerous time and love it. Have seen nesting heron, wood stork, egrets, anhinga, bobcats, alligators. Nature lovers paradise. The only downside is the aggressive grannies that power walk side by side and hog whole boardwalk. UGH! For nature and views definitely gets 5 stars. One off because of nasty ol’ biddies.

This is an absolutely beautiful wetlands trail. The whole trail itself is a relatively long loop, but it does branch off at certain points to lead you back to the entrance. The nice part about this park is that each area that you come across feels wildly diverse and different, almost as if you’ve stepped into a different state or region. It’s separated and secluded from any roads and housing complexes, so you don’t get any outside noises bleeding though.

There’s plenty of wildlife on this trail; butterflies at the main entrance, turtles, birds, and even a few alligators.
The nice part about this area is the main building also serves as a learning center for the surrounding wetlands, and the wildlife located around it. There’s also a few tanks located inside that have turtles and baby alligators.

Would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a really diverse and relaxing trail with almost no outside interference.

Really enjoyed this trail! It seemed a little strange at first that the wetlands were located near some housing complexes, but the area itself feels secluded and preserved. When you first walk up the boardwalk, you get a view of the actual wetlands themselves, and it might seem small at first glance but the park itself was bigger than i expected. There was plenty of birds, turtles, and a few alligators! Unlike some other wetlands, this trail actually had a pleasant fragrance along most of the path. Definitely recommended if you’re looking for a very relaxing, beautiful trail.

It was a nice walk. However living down here I didn't see any other wildlife than I already see in the canal in my back yard. Nice it's free. Will go back.
