The Wellington Environmental Preserve occasionally hosts various events but is mostly a local area worth checking out any time.

The 365-acre facility includes a boardwalk, paved pedestrian trails, horse trails and learning centers, including a six-story observation tower. The Palm Beach County Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers named the Wellington Preserve “Project of the Year for its unique impact as a water quality improvement area, natural preserve, equestrian area and wildlife park.

The preserve also functions as a storm water flood prevention storage area. Wellington, in partnership with the South Florida Water Management District, built the facility in compliance with the 1994 Everglades Forever Act, which requires rainwater to be cleansed of phosphorus before it enters the Everglades. To accomplish this, seven storm water pumps were built or renovated and canals were widened to route rainwater into the preserve. Along the way, the water is naturally cleansed as it flows through more than two miles of wetland, littoral shelves and deep-water sediment traps. Learn more about the Wellington Preserve.
