It didn't look like much from the road but when we got out it turned into a very enjoyable time walking on the path, no hills, and seeing lots of birds. Very nice.

Love the walk through here, several viewpoints. Not really big but good for a short leisurely walk. Pretty quiet with places to sit and read or relax along the way. Seasonal birds visible from some locations. Place to picnic as well (covered).

Well done nature exhibit combined with about a one mile walking trail in the wetlands harboring birds and a variety of animal life. Frequented by eagles, a great place for exploring the outdoors. No pets.

This park is close to home, so I visit several times a year. The trails are easy, but there aren't enough of them (probably to protect the natural habitat). You either need to walk all around the park which takes over an hours for us,...More
