Green Cay Nature Center & Wetlands is a 100-acre nature preserve. Before being made into a reserve, it was used for farming by the then owners, Ted and Trudy Winsberg. While the land was acquired in 1999, construction didn’t begin till 2003. The main attraction of this park is its elevated broad-walk. It takes you through various parts of the park including cypress swamp, wetland hammock and tropical hardwood hammock. The reserve has many gazebos spread across the area. It also has a nature center that has many exhibits. Some of them are American alligator hole, frog terrarium and a turtle pond.

It's rare, that we turn an urbanized place back to wetlands. The project was done with love and attention to details. You can enjoy the bird watching, the ever changing emerald colored water, and alligators from the boardwalk. I can see Flora and Fauna of this magical place every time, closing my eyes as a part of evening meditation. Bringing your children there will, maybe instill in them love to the nature. Yes, clean, and controlled wetlands, is like a bit laquired nature, but still NATURE.
I love this place so much! I want to be employed here so I can get to know everything about it. I studied the exhibits for over an hour. I stood on the deck outside of the center just taking in all of the sights until I had to leave. Nature is breathtaking. The only negative thing I can say is regarding the woman working behind the information desk. She was yelling at a senior citizen. I spoke with him after his encounter. He is not hard of hearing. Besides that, I only wish I could have spent more time at this WONDERFUL center and property.
I enjoy coming here for all the herons and the alligator I regularly see. It's a beautiful walk and there is a 1-mile and half mile Loop would you can also combine for a good one point five miles. It's lovely every time of year and parking is free. I take a walk here before I go to a doctor's appointment!
Located on Jog Road across from the water treatment plant. The wetlands are part of the filtration system. They have a nature center in the middle wit board walks around it. A very nice quiet, tranquil setting.
The nature center was clean and beautiful and perfect. Not too many people, not too hot, and a wonderful way to celebrate Thanksgiving. I am grateful for this fantastic jewel in our county.
