“Great place for birding”

Wakodahatchee Wetlands
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 October 2018

Wakodahatchee Wetlands is a fantastic nature place for birders, photographers, and nature lovers. I liked it better than Green Cay, which is nearby. Green Cay had a lot of people using the boardwalk as their gym – very noisy and rude.

From an elevated boardwalk, I saw a wonderful variety of herons, egrets, ibis, woodstorks, hawks, osprey, etc; also, snakes, alligators (one was huge!!!) and colorful iguanas. When I was there, the anhingas and egrets were building their nests and mating. It’s great to see nature so close. The birds didn’t seem bothered by anyone.

I enjoyed watching an osprey catch a fish and eat it.

Really an enjoyable place to visit. And the best part, is that it's free to get in.

Great to have this beautiful nature resource (and the nearby Green Cay which is larger) where visitors can see a wide array of birds, turtles, fish, iguanas, alligators, and we even saw a real Bobcat once. Great photo opportunities and just a glorious place right nestled in what otherwise is an overpopulated suburban area. It's a delightful community resource and a nearly hidden treasure.

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.

Early morning beautiful walk. Wear bug spray and sunscreen. Easy walk and sights are wonderful. Lots of vegetation and birds and reptiles. We saw baby alligators and much more. Great walking whether with young children, teens, friends or solo. A definite activity if you are in the area.
