West Lake Park consists of the Anne Kolb Nature Center (N) and West Lake Park Recreation Area (S) located on Sheridan Street. West Lake has a north and south basin located west of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). Many short trails are available. At Anne Kolb, bird the mangrove boardwalks for Yellow-crowned Night Herons, and check the vantages of the ICW for shorebirds, gulls and terns . Look for soaring Short-tailed Hawks in winter. The nature center exhibit hall has a small entrance fee. Canoe/kayak rentals and guided boat tours of the mangroves are available. As in all of South Florida, even birding the trees in the parking lot can be fruitful; over 15 species of wood-warbler have been recorded and a Thick-billed Vireo was found here in May 2005.
