This is such an unexpected gem in the middle of housing developments. It is a great place to walk and relax and take in nature, and right now all of the water birds are nesting or raising babies. They are everywhere, especially the Wood Storks,...More

Along with the Japanese garden; this is the best place to visit in Delray Beach. A VERY nice way to spend several hours. That it is free is amazing.

Springtime is the best time here, as the wood stork fledglings were in abundance. Also saw great blue heron juveniles, cattle egret and tons of other birds. You could spend hours here.

We were not so excited to go, but the comments encouraged us to see it. Anyway, it is free, full of bird nests, other birds, rabbit and bunnies, guanas, gators, and some other animals. It closes at 7:30 pm. And do not forget to bring...More

This was our first visit and the young chicks had recently hatched. There were literally hundreds of egret families creating a cacophony of sound. It was amazing! Many other birds and a huge alligator topped off a memorable visit. Do not miss this! No charge...More

I literally drove around the two country blocks it’s located in. So the driveway is right at the local power station, tucked behind it. Parking was full, and it was crowded. We were not terribly late in going. Maybe 9 am. But it really is...More

AMAZING place to visit! Wonderful location with an abundance of wildlife. Got up close & personal next to huge storks sitting in their nests with their little ones - feeding them, and plumping the nests. Hundreds of storks filled the trees sitting on nests with...More

Lots of photo ops for alligators, fabulous birds, turtles, other wildlife and beautiful native plants. About 1 mile. Clean public bathrooms in parking lot. Visit at sunset when birds fly in to nest. It’s glorious.

Visited the wetlands. Worth the trip if it’s not too hot. Plenty of nesting birds, alligators and iguanas.

Everyone should go here in the next couple of weeks because the wood storks have given birth and the babies will probably be fledging. The storks are blanketing the trees; the babies are making their voices heard in the nests and you are right there...More

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

Ditto to previous answer. There are parking lots that fill quickly but most people don't stay very long so if you are patient a spot will open up.
