We went with friends to 'the slough' and it was a great experience. It's a nice walk on a mostly 'tree canopied' boardwalk. We saw many different types of birds and plants. It's a great place for families to take kids. I highly recommend going...More

Excellent free adventure. Handicap wheelchair accessible on wood plank that trail around a lake. Wildlife placards are educational along the way. Circular walk is easy and relaxing if people are quiet. Binoculars are helpful. I have been here twice and enjoy the Cypress tree aroma,...More

I live close and walk its boardwalk several times a year. I would be happy if fewer visitors knew about it, but I need to be honest and say it is a jewel of nature in the middle of the Fort Myers metropolis.

Every time we visit Ft Myers (usually once a year), the Slough is on our list. For the price of parking, you can spend a whole afternoon wandering the many boardwalks through the Slough. The walk is easy, and there are longer and shorter routes....More

We did a couple of nature preserves in the area and this by far was the best. A boardwalk trail made the walk easy. In fact there is no running or power walking allowed. Even if there was, you would miss everything to see. Hawks...More
