I am so glad my friend and I decided to visit this park. We sent several hours walking and enjoying the beautiful area. We were also surprised to see a trumpeter swan. I will definitely return again.

My family and I love the bird sanctuary. We appreciate that we always see Canada Geese, Bald Eagles, and ducks. Most recently we saw lots of goslings (baby geese). Very cute, but their parents are very protective! Note the observation tower is closed for much...More
