A friend and I joined a knowledgeable docent for an hour's walk on the boardwalk; we decided we'd have missed out without his company. He pointed out lots of unfamiliar trees and cypress knees and other plants; he explained about the reclaimed water from the sewer system that is piped in to create the wetland; he showed us birds in the water and on the wing. And we even saw the huge alligator, Half-jaw, right beneath the boardwalk at the edge of the water.

This is a true gem right in the heart of Boynton Beach Florida. The first time I went there several years ago could not believe the expanse and beauty and never imagined this to be in the midst of so many highly developed communities. Each time you go it’s a new experience of nature at its best. Appeals to all ages.

A great place to take a walk and see alligators, turtles, many birds including migratory, swamp, and Florida's vegetation.
It was set up by the South Florida water authority for conservation--- to utilize treated sewage effluent; to increase groundwater; to attract birds, turtles, alligators, etc.; and for public recreation.

A great center with informative and helpful staff aswell as excellent displays. We walked the trails and saw many different birds and animals. Looked all a long for the old Florida Gator and was denied until we were leaving the Center near the exit. There he was, grinning at us as if to say "See Ya, I was here all along!"

My husband and I love their catwalks above the water looking at all the gorgeous birds, alligators and wildlife.

We would totally recommend this beautiful place
