A network of paved paths and hardpacked limestone natural walkways wind through 90 acres of pine flatwoods, oak hammocks, and dense palm hammocks behind the Okeeheelee Nature Center at popular Okeeheelee Park.

At the Okeeheelee Nature Center you can enjoy birding and wildlife watching at a variety of pond overlooks on a gentle stroll through habitats once common throughout this highly populated area just west of West Palm Beach.

The park has a massive green space with many miles of paved walking trails around former rock pits that create large ponds. These trails are separate from the ones around the park itself; you must access them from the nature center area. Along the trail system, several overlooks provide scenic views over ponds and into a fenced enclosure with deer. Highlights include bird blinds along the East Marsh and a walk to the cypress pond overlook.
