Memorial was very touching, but only saw one racoon. No other widelife at all, no gators, hardly any birds. What a shame.

Comfortable boardwalks take you through the whole area. Bring water and wear comfortable shoes. Looks like a lot of fun for kayakers.

We enjoyed a nice walk through mangroves and saw fiddler crabs, a raccoon and many birds. The water views were beautiful.

Visited here today. Very nice boardwalk trail. With the drought in the area right now the swampy areas were pretty dry and very little animal activity.

A wonderful walk through the preserves and alongside the river. Kayaks are available for rent. Fishing from piers.

We have walked this boardwalk a few times with our family and it is a really neat area. The boardwalk is shaded so it is a great way to escape the heat of the sun. This is a nice easy walk and great for all ages. We have not really seen any wildlife but there was lots of fish jumping.

This no fee city park located directly on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River is a great way to observe a living mangrove forest. The well-maintained boardwalk allows one to feel a part of the forest as you meander around on your way to a wonderful view of the river.
