Beautiful day for a nature walk. Lots of birds, turtle, and plants. Enjoyable afternoon! Look forward to coming back at a different time of the year to see transient birds...

What a delightful way to commune with nature! This spot is a bit of paradise that’s easy to get to, easy to park at , and an oasis amidst all the homes nearby.

Went here at sunset to watch the natural activity and view the rise of the full moon. What a delight! So serene and beautiful. I strongly suggest you check it out at the sunset period to enjoy another time frame. And so many friendly visitors.

Walking in Green Kay is a wonderful way to commune with nature. It is hard to enjoy it during the summer months due to the heat but during the fall, winter, and Spring it is a real delight and it is FREE!

A wonderful serene place to walk and observe Florida wetland flora and fauna. We are snowbirds and Green Cay Wetlands is our 'go to' place. Take a leisurely walk along a sturdy boardwalk with information along the way to help you identify the birds, plants...More
