The wooden boardwalk extending out into the marsh really makes it easy to slowly walk along and spot various wildlife in the marsh. Bring bug repellent.

Been several times great Boardwalk to walk for exercise but no benches so for seniors hard no place to rest. Never seen many birds there just few but I visit in heat of summer. Nice bit of nature just needs benches and perhaps picinic tables

Lots of bird sightings, varies by the season. We have seen turtles and even a gator hanging offshore. Bring binoculars!

Nice walk on a boardwalk through a wetland area. Depending on the time of year, you can see flowers and birds and even a gator if you are lucky. Walk is only maybe 30 minutes unless you love to take photos.
