One thing that struck me was the absence of wildlife. I didn't see any birds, other than one egret. The system of tickets for the jitney and the boats was a little confusing. The boat ride is nice -- I didn't disembark to see the land-based attractions. While it's serene, I didn't have the feeling it's anything special. To be fair, I was there on a brutally hot day in early October. Perhaps a visit in spring would be different. But, I'd say skip this and just enjoy one of the many parks in the city.
