Great for Bird and Nature Watching

Beautiful park with lots of birds and other wildlife. We saw, alligators, heron, ibis, turtles, pelicans, and wood stork. The cypress forest keeps most of the trail in the shade.

A mile and a half boardwalk takes you through a preserved ccypress swamp with an alligator lake and an otter pond. Don't expect to rush through like nature Disnet. You'll miss a lot. We saw alligators, turtles and lots of birds. At one point a large white heron landed eight feet awat from us and started fishing. All you pay... More

It's hard to believe you can get a taste of the Everglades right in the midst of civilization. But as you walk the level Boardwalk out into the slough, you really feel like you've been taken back in time. Gone is civilization... Present is native wildlife and habitat. Bring your camera and a pair of field glasses for better viewing.... More

This is a great way to experience local wildlife in their natural habitat. Walking through the slough on boardwalks and seeing birds, turtles, gators, crabs, lizards..... A great, relaxing escape.
