We walked the boardwalk and saw hundreds of birds nesting, some babies in their nests and several alligators including a mother and at least 10 babies.

We really enjoyed our time there! We took our time and spent a nice relaxing couple of hours strolling along the board walk and saw a ton of wild life; several alligators, tons of birds, turtles, fish, an iguana and a snake! We saw two large birds mating, and a different species of bird swim under water and catch and... More

The Wetlands are in Delray Beach is a lot closer than the Everglades. This is a bird watchers paradise. Besides the birds we saw alligators, turtles, and fish. Beware that parking is limited so plan on a week day visit. The path is flat and is wheel chair accessible

Don't miss this free wetlands walk if you like wildlife. February featured breeding wood storks, cormorants, herons and egrets, plus a myriad of other birds and several large alligators.

Usually the rookery is a good mix of great egrets, anhinga, great blue heron and wood storks. but it seems the rookery has been over taken by Wood Storks.Bird life over all was good with even the non native purple swamp-hen present in small numbers. A great place to spend a morning or late afternoon

Best place to see Florida birds and wildlife in at least Palm Beach County. During nesting season (now) the birds are everywhere and very up close. Especially the wood storks this year are nesting everywhere in droves. The walk around the park is alwats great exersize.
