Beautiful, quiet, peaceful walking area all on Boardwalk platforms, several variations of the walk, one longer than the other. Birds bountiful but not so many others....once saw an allegation, another time other large turtles....don't go for the wildlife, go for the natural beauty.

Take a leisurely stroll along a boardwalk and watch the birds at play in the wetlands. Very relaxing. But bring your own water since there is not any available on site.

The walkway is stable and the wildlife experience top-notch. Birds, gators, flora and fauna genuinely Florida!
