Wakodahatchee is our favorite nature trail as it is close to home and quite literally amazing! We have been going there for a good ten years both with family and whenever we have out of town guests. We also have a "Spot the first alligator" and win a buck and someone always wins. It's literally a breathe of fresh air... More

So there are a few gators. The boardwalk of raised and well maintained. When hatching season comes, this is a splendid preserve to watch the feeding. Did you know the gators protect the birds from the raccoons? That is why you see the birds on islands. Hey the boardwalk is also a great place to walk and to exercise if... More

Great spot to see alligators and birds. Very easy to get to and great for kids. Perfect afternoon activity if you're visiting Boca or Delray.

Marvelous place for bird watching and photography. Also alligators, iguanas, and more. Watch birds nesting and raising chicks. Many people use the boardwalk just for walking. Parking is limited in peak season (Jan-Mar) but there is never more than a 15-20 minute wait.

A zillion birds, a gator, turtles... Tranquil and peaceful. All year round the scenery changes. It's free and absolutely worth a visit.

Wakodahatchee Wetlands is one of our favorite places to go in Delray since we moved to South Florida nearly two years ago. It is peaceful, beautiful, and an easy walk on a one mile boardwalk. I had written a review previously but decided to update my review after returning to the wetlands yesterday. We had been to the wetlands only... More

We never get tired to going here and seeing the birds in their native habitat during their different phases of life. Wonderful place and so happy it isn't too far from where we live.

A great way to spend an hour. We saw a wide variety of birds, as well as alligators, iguanas, turtles, fish and more. The egrets and herons could be seen up close and it was amazing to see their nests (with babies) just 20 feet away.

There is no entrance fee for this park operated by Palm Beach County. As others have reported you can see many different animals that thrive in this man made wetland, Parking may be difficult during peak times associated with wildlife activity. However, there is an office building a bit south of the park along Jog Road and you might be... More
