We went first thing in the morning. Parking was easy. But when we left it was very crowded. We had an awesome time. We saw turtles, beautiful birds, tons of iguana, alligators and fish. Go early!!

I go every few months as it is an extraordinary experience - a beautiful boardwalk as if you are in the everglades with amazing wildlife. Bring your camera as you will want to capture all you see!

Thank you for your review of Wakodahatchee. We always love from hearing from our repeat visitors, who get to experience the wetlands throughout the year and throughout so many different cycles.

Come early for the bird watching and alligator activity. Certain times of year different birds come an brood in big nests right next to the boardwalk. No pets- no bicycles - very tranquil and benches and sun shade to sit and read or contemplate life!

This is a great place to: walk, view various birds, and get away from the fast-paced life. There is no admission cost, it is well-maintained, and easily accessible.
