  • I took the family that was visiting. The birds, animals, flora, and fauna were amazing. The hike is very pleasant. I would definitely return.

  • This Nature Center is absolutely beautiful. Free parking, free entrance. I believe you have to pay a few dollars if you go into the office/display area where they have a few small animals on display. That area is only open Wednesday through Sunday 9A-3P. The Nature Center itself is open everyday Sunrise to Sunset. It's great to walk for exercise or just for a relaxing walk with nature. Lots of wild birds to see. Turtles, alligators, etc. The views are breathtaking. The trail on the boardwalk is just over a mile and it takes you around the Nature Center. It's just beautiful. There are plenty of benches to sit and relax. Bathrooms are clean and well kept. The whole place seems very secure and safe. You will take very nice pictures of The Beautiful Florida Nature here. Thanks for checking in. Enjoy and have a blessed day.
  • What a way to connect with nature! Multiple trails in an elevated wooded path that goes threw marshland, water and forest. Some paths are 1/2 mile or less while others are longer. While there we saw turtles, frogs, multiple species of birds and insects. Great fun for kids with an indoor facility with several small animals and a quite powerful AC. Recommend the family does the path first and then tour the facility to cool off. No bikes or running allowed, not a lot of shadow in paths so bring lots of water and sun protection. Child friendly paths are wheel chair accessible (but will be bumpy) Restrooms available
