The new Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre is a nature and activity attraction. It adjoins the Tralee Bay Nature Reserve which encompasses over 8000 acres extending from Tralee town to the Maharee Islands and is a designated Natura 2000 site. The activity area is free to access. This includes the activity lake where pedal boats, canoes and rowing boats are available for hire. There are lakeside walks and a picnic area. A smaller lake has been stocked with freshwater fish with demonstrations for those who wish to learn how to fish.

Access to the nature zone is via the eco-friendly visitor centre. Here, the diversity of the Tralee Bay ecosystem is explained using static and interactive displays, audio visual and hands-on activities. There is an entrance fee, but this includes a guided tour, 10 minute safari boat trip through the freshwater wetlands and access to the 20 metre high viewing tower (stairs and lift) which affords panoramic views of Tralee Bay.

The Centre includes a lakeside café, small retail/shop area, visitor services and toilets. It is also an orientation centre for the wider north and west Kerry areas. The café which overlooks the watersports lake provides a welcome respite whether you are visiting the park or just taking a break en route to another destination.
