This small pond next to the center was covered with tiny duckweed.

 

The actual Cypress Swamp encompasses 400 acres. The 0.4 Mile boardwalk takes you through a tall forest of Cypress trees. This kind of boardwalk without hand rails is less restricting and you feel more engulfed by the sourrounding trees.
