Very nice clean visitors center. Very nice walk. We spent 1.5 hours total in park. We saw many creatures and plants. We saw 3 different alligators. We had fun. Highly recommend.

Spent an hour and 45 minutes here and it was very quiet and calm. We saw a very large alligator and some turtles. It’s free to walk and around and it’s $1 an hour for the car park

We walked through this morning around 9:45 and it was very nice. Part of the boardwalk is still closed due to hurricane Irma. But we were still able to see numerous species of birds, as well as turtles, alligators, apple snails and eggs.
