Anne Kolb Nature Center
Anne Kolb Nature Center was named after a dedicated environmentalist and County Commissioner from the region. Part of the 1,400-acre West Lake Park, one of the largest parks in Florida, you can find a variety of wildlife here, including white ibis, osprey and peregrine falcon. Tour the mangrove wetlands by foot on boardwalks, by bicycle on trails or by canoe. A nature center rents bicycles; the park's marina rents canoes and runs guided canoe trips on Saturdays, January-March. Experience an environmental boat tour; 40-minute guided tours are available; ask at the desk in the center.
The trail is best with a knowledgeable guide. The kayak and canoe rentals are very affordable and the best part of the park allowing for intimate interaction with the wildlife as fish fly out of the water and birds soar overhead. Recommended for any nature lover or any one just trying to get away from the chaotic urban world.
I lived near Ann Kolb for 12 years and it's a great place to visit and see wild life. You should bring bug repellent as at certain times of the year you really will need it. Also you should first, as with all parks stop in the visitor ctr. and ask what birds, etc. are being seen. There are several trails, an observation tower (complete with elevator), an education ctr. and even banquet facilities. There are native plants, art work and an interpretive ctr.. Free Admission to the park. Well worth a trip and great for families. In the Spring call about their nesting turtle program.
The park is very relaxing and a place to get away for a little while. The little crabs were running around from hole to hole and at one time, they were sunning on the side of the water. Very nice to look at, maybe we will see some larger ones on our return.
Amid the hustle and bustle of Fort Lauderdale is the Anne Kolb Nature Center. A serene place to spend an hour or two. The boardwalk over the mangrove swamp is very interesting as well as the nature museum. You feel that you are far away from civilisation.
