Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau has installed a live webcam in Bonita Springs in partnership with Wonder Gardens, a zoological park and botanical garden. Viewers can see recorded sunrises, as well as live views of the Brick Walking Path, the Gravel Path and the Green House Aviaries at Wonder Gardens, and Imperial River Kayaks, Riverfront Lawn and Riverfront Path taken from Wonder Gardens across the Imperial River. Visit the webcam at visitfortmyers.com/webcams#bonita-springs.
“We love that people near and far can experience a little bit of the Wonder Gardens through these webcams,” said Sarah Williamson, Wonder Gardens’ retail and communications manager. “It’s the next best thing to being here in person!”
For a new event, Wine and Wonder Uncorked in December, the webcam recorded a time-lapse video of the event that can also be viewed on the webcam site.
Webcams allow locals and visitors to see what is happening around Southwest Florida and are available at visitfortmyers.com with views of Boca Grande, Manatee Park, Captiva Island, North Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Sanibel Island and now Bonita Springs and the Wonder Gardens.
Viewers are able to control the views seen on the webcam livestream by clicking the icon with four arrows. Only one viewer at a time can control the camera views. Viewers can also click the camera icon to take a full-size picture. Most webcams are live from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
