Enjoy a bit of time away from the hustle and bustle of the City of Delray Beach at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands. This is a 50-acre space in the middle of Delray Beach, FL that is home to many beautiful marsh spaces and smaller islands with native plants all around.
Walk along the large pond areas around the wetlands. The boardwalk is nearly a mile in length and takes you all around the entire area. See how the moon or sun reflects beautifully off of the waterways, many of which are maintained by having treated water pumped in through a local reclamation facility.
See how many birds you can find while here in Delray Beach, Florida. The wetlands are known to be home to at least 150 different kinds of birds coming in various sizes. The egret and grebe are among the more common birds to find here. Look for alligators and turtles among other marine mammals while out at the wetlands.
See the many natural brushes and weeds around the wetlands. The duckweed and pickerelweed plants mix in with the oak trees to create one of the most picturesque scenes that you will find around the City of Delray Beach.
