Wonderful boardwalks keep your feet dry & the park accessible. Such a peaceful place. Not a lot of folks there. Butterflies, bees, prairie flowers in bloom. Acres of turkey foot grass which is gorgeous! Worth the walk.

If I made it there it was a 1. Mapped it through trip advisor and ended up in a seemingly bad area of town. Don't know if there is actually a nature preserve there or not.

I would love to rave on about all Irwin Prairie has to offer, the best is the solitude while you look and listen. Nowhere else on earth offers this unique environment, and I mean this literally, nowhere.

I have been to this nature preserve several times during several seasons. I enjoy the boardwalk path. It is very level and easy walking for those who may have difficulty with inclines.

This is a no-frills nature walk. If you want to be surrounded by the "Black Swamp" the way it must have been a few hundred years ago, this is the place to see! A boardwalk takes you through a wandering trail of this natural area...More

Wow this place was fantastic! If you love wildflowers this was the place to be. Trilliums and Wood Betonies as well as native Honeysuckles!

A carefully protected piece of a very endangered habitat. From the parking lot, a boardwalk without handrails stretches out across the property, touching all of the significant environments located there. I am handicapped and need a cane to walk, but found this walk easy, as...More

This is a great place to walk on the boardwalk through marshes. It's a place that every nature lover should visit. While you're there you feel like you're a long way from civilization and have a chance to see wildlife as it should be viewed....More
