A beautiful haven of Florida-ness. The visitor center is extremely informative. Looking for alligators is an entertaining and sometimes successful diversion. Also drive across Hagen Ranch Road to a lovely loop path around a retention pond. It's a mostly shady walk.

Beautiful! Capturing sunsets there is quite an experience. My favorite part of visiting Green Cay is seeing the Roseate Spoonbills. There are a plethora of Florida wading birds, ospreys, hawks, Ibis, various herons, as well as alligators, raccoons, and bobcats. A South Florida must for those who love nature and birds.

This is a beautiful hidden gem in the middle of civilization. The entire circle is a boardwalk which makes it accessible and easy to navigate. The only negative was that there were way too many people there. It killed the immersion. Still, some of the views were stunning. You forget where you are.

Such a gorgeous place. I got lots of great pics of wildlife. I really recommend this place if you into walking & nature watching. Even had a huge alligator swim right under our feet on the bay walk.

Green Cay Wetlands is one of the spectacular spots in Palm Beach County. The birds, turtles and alligator were out this morning. The boardwalk is in great condition making the walking safe and secure.
