Boardwalk reopens: Gumbo Limbo Nature Center

7960694076?profile=originalUnder the branches of a trio of Gumbo Limbo trees, a family takes advantage of the recently reopened boardwalk.

The project cost $630,810, paid for by the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District. The boardwalk

closed in February 2015 when engineers discovered it was about to collapse. The new structure

is elevated. ‘It has a crawl space beneath it, and you feel like you’re more a part of the canopy,’

District Chairman Robert Rollins said. ‘It’s a lot easier flow for the critters that live there.’

Work on two more phases has not started.
