Been several times great Boardwalk to walk for exercise but no benches so for seniors hard no place to rest. Never seen many birds there just few but I visit in heat of summer. Nice bit of nature just needs benches and perhaps picinic tables

Lots of bird sightings, varies by the season. We have seen turtles and even a gator hanging offshore. Bring binoculars!

Nice walk on a boardwalk through a wetland area. Depending on the time of year, you can see flowers and birds and even a gator if you are lucky. Walk is only maybe 30 minutes unless you love to take photos.

The preserve is a lovely retreat for those who enjoy leisurely walk on wooden planked trail in the midst of tall grasses and water.
