Come visit Sawgrass Recreation Park. Feel the excitement and learn the history of Florida’s most remarkable treasure–the Everglades. Renew your spirit as you glide across miles of river at speeds up to 40 mph, and get up close and personal with native wildlife. Start your adventure with a 30 minute airboat tour of the Florida Everglades. Catch a glimpse of endangered wildlife as you skim across the glassy water. Take a walk on the wild side back in time with an original dinosaur, the Florida Alligator. Be sure to bring your camera, so you can capture the excitement of you cradling one of these majestic animals with our “Hold a Baby Alligator” experience. Your adventure will include a visit to our Exotic Wildlife exhibit. Predators Unlimited is a separate organization that brings a variety of animals that may include large cats like the endangered Florida Panther. While you are at Sawgrass please don’t miss our “Swamp”yard Island! You and your family can interact and feed many of our animals at this exhibit.

We didn't get to see any wild aligators it was probobly to cold. We did get to hold a cute babygator and watch a gator"show". The people who works with the animals really seem to care about them!
You didn't get that real Everglades feeling at this place because it was open landscape. Altough it's still worth a visit!
