“Pretty boardwalk, not a lot of wildlife”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

Daggerwing has a very pretty boardwalk that purports to traverse swampy terrain. The park was mostly dry when I was there, and the nature center was closed. Didn't see a lot of birds, just a handful of the usual suspects, palm and yellow-rumped warbler, blue-gray gnatcatcher. I did see a kestrel and a parula warbler which was migrating through. The bird feeder at the entrance to the trail does attract painted buntings, so approach gingerly, as to not scare them away. They are always worth a look. My biggest beef with the place is that it was deserted when I first got there, and, as I was by myself, it felt a little creepy walking around alone. I wouldn't go by myself again.

“A nice start!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

What it does have, it does fairly well. The new exhibits with the Owl and the bee thing are great... it just needs about five times that much. This could be a fantastic place for nature lovers of all ages with more investment, but for now it's just okay. The boardwalks are nice, as is the proximity to Coconut Cove Waterpark. Plus it's free. So again, a good start!
