My boyfriend has always wanted to stop to see the birds and I'm glad we stopped on our way to Key West. We made a small donation, walked around and truly appreciated nature.

This place runs on donations and is a wonderful place to visit. There is many birds to look at. They appeared to be well cared for and have plenty of shade. It was very interesting.

nice park with lots of birds. You can make a walk towards the sea just right to the coast. There are also very nice views and fishes jumping from the water

Read the reviews and was not dissapointed. Sad to see so many birds that need our help, but so glad there is a place like this to care for them. Please be sure to donate so they can continue this great work

This is a great place to take kids to see how garbage can effect wildlife. Many get trapped in fishing line, plastic bags, fish hooks,etc and the staff are great at aswering questions.
