The City Of Orlando Celebrates The Opening Of New 2,200-Foot Boardwalk At Orlando Wetlands Park

Orlando City leaders have celebrated the completion of a new 2,200-foot boardwalk at Orlando Wetlands Park, with the new boardwalk unveiled Monday by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, who was joined by District 3 Commissioner: Robert F. Stuart, together with City staff and Friends of the Orlando Wetlands.

The elevated walkway will help make the park more accessible for visitors, with new opportunities to view and photograph the many birds and wildlife that call the 1,650-acre park home.
