You never know what you will spot walking around Wakodahatchee! Alligators, turtles, anhingas, wood storks, herons, and more!! Have a fun walk, alone, with a friend, with kids and grandkids. Walk fast or slow, enjoy Florida’s wildlife and good weather!

I had a couple hours to get some good photos of various wading birds and ducks. It has a wooden walking path over wetlands with many tree covered islands for birds that are up close and numerous.

Love going for a beautiful walk now that the weather has cooled. Meet lovely people that are just there to enjoy the scenery in nature and talk with everyone. Only negative is the small Parking area.

This is a great facility for anyone who wants to take a walk and see birds and wildlife thriving in their natural habitat. The Water Utility Authority did a great job and a huge service to the public by creating this wetland park.

It's great walking above the water and seeing an undisturbed art of nature. Saw plants. birds, baby alligators with mom (buried in the mud), and nests awaiting springtime occupants. Having bathroom facilities finally makes this walk ideal.

Easy parking, short walk (handicapped accessible), and full of birds and critters. Especially great in the early morning and late afternoon.

There is a parking lot that usually is large enough for everyone... The exception seems to be spring break and other times when lots of visitors from the north are present. Even then, a line forms for the parking lot, and... More
