We visit Wakodahatchee every year and never tire of it. The boardwalk winds through the wetlands. We always see so many birds, often turtles, and sometimes alligators. In the spring, you can see all the baby birds in the nests with the parents flying back and forth to feed them.

Fascinating to see wildlife up close in a natural setting. Great spot for all family members and particularly for bird watchers and photographers.

We love coming here. My husband went a few mornings by himself at sunrise for photography purposes, but we have taken the kids as well. Lovely boardwalks running above the marsh, amazing birds and alligators. Just a gorgeous, scenic place. You can easily spend an hour there or more. My kids loved running along the boardwalk and spotting things.

Went with my husband on a recommendation from a friend and I thought it was beautiful. Worth a stroll on a weekend day. Get there early as parking is tough

Great nature preserve in Delray Beach, free to get into, parking can be tough since it is a popular place. Boardwalks with viewing areas, easy walk with lots of wildlife viewing in the middle of suburban sprawl.

a wonderful, peaceful walk in the middle of urban South Florida. The walk is easy as you are on a wooden boardwalk. You stop at your leisure, and observe many different birds. note the preserve is about 1/4 of a mile south of the address.

Nice place to spend a bit of time, stroll and look at the birds and animals. We saw a croc. and tons of birds. Plant life is amazing too. Just a pleasant place to walk around and visit.

Much and varied wildlife to be seen. The boardwalk is convenient to the parking lot and is about 1-1/2 miles long. Parking is very limited, however.

If you like nature, you're sure to like this nature walk You will see alligators, all kinds of birds and lizards.The walk is a pleasant one and descriptions of the birds trees and different wild life will be on plaques describing what you are looking at. It's an enjoyable couple of hours, but wear comfortable walking shoes or sneakers.

Go at 4:00 pm from Mid January to March to see amazing birds, turtles and one lazy 8' alligator. Bring camera and binoculars if you have them but many birds within a few feet
