Sweetwater Wetlands Park is a man-made wetland habitat of more than 125 acres of wetlands and ponds. Shaped like the head of an alligator, the park has several miles of trails and is teeming with plants and animals. The park was designed to improve water quality by filtering out pollution and nutrients. Now a thriving habitat, Sweetwater Wetlands Park is filled with vast numbers of plants and animals, including birds, butterflies, alligators and Florida cracker horses. It has quickly become a major Florida hotspot.
We will be walking along some of the 3.5 miles of trails consisting of crushed gravel trails and boardwalks, and multiple viewing platforms.
We will carpool from Ormond Town Center. Note the early time. Travel time to this site is just under 2 hours.
Bring water, snacks and lunch. Bug spray, a good hat and sunscreen are recommended. The trails can be wet, but are usually in very good condition.
