Wakodahatchee Wetlands reviews
If you want a nice easy nature walk with trail then go here. You will definitely see alligators in their natural habitat and beautiful birds. I’ve even seen Rabbits and lots of turtles more »
Great way to spend a cloudy afternoon during our beach trip. The boardwalk is the perfect length for a stroll. We saw lots of varieties of birds, some fish, and the occasional turtle poking its head..... more »
Wakodahatchee Wetlands is the absolutely best place to view a wide array of birds and reptiles in their natural surroundings. Early Spring is the best time to see mother birds sitting on their nests and recently hatched young ones in the best! They grow rather quickly so you won't want to miss them! We are lucky enough to live only 2 minutes from this fascinating place!
A great place to see some of the beautiful wildlife Florida has to offer for free! This serene little park has a boardwalk over a small piece of wetlands where you can encounter turtles, iguanas, many beautiful birds, and even alligators! Make sure to bring water and hats to shield from the sun.
