The Wakodahatchee Wetlands is a park located in Delray Beach, Florida. The park was created on 50 acres of unused utility land and transformed into a recreation wetland open to the public with a three-quarter mile boardwalk that crosses between open water pond areas, emergent marsh areas, shallow shelves, and islands with shrubs and snags to foster nesting and roosting. The boardwalk has interpretive signage as well as gazebos with benches along the way.
The Wakodahatchee Wetlands is part of the South section of the Great Florida Birding Trail and offers many opportunities to observe birds in their natural habitats.
Wakodahatchee has a three-quarter-mile boardwalk, and along the way, you will see birds that are so used to the passing people and you can get extraordinarily close.
More than 170 species of birds have been identified here, including the Purple Gallinule, green herons, yellow-rumped warblers, bald eagles, a variety of hawks and flocks of shorebirds, to name just a few.
