Grassy Waters Preserve is a 23 square mile wetlands ecosystem that serves as the freshwater supply for the City of West Palm Beach and the towns of South Palm Beach and Palm Beach Island. Historically, Grassy Waters was both a key component of the Greater Everglades watershed and the headwaters of the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River.
The Preserve hosts a staffed Nature Center with an ADA accessible boardwalk through the wetlands. Naturalist guided canoeing, kayaking and swamp hikes offers visitors an authentic Everglades experience. This ecological gem is home to over 100 species of birds including the endangered Snail Kite. Self-guided hiking and biking trails are also available. Truly one of te best kept secrets in the County
