Nice place to have an easy walk all year round. Grass fields, woods, ponds, lakes, river, are all within easy walking distance from the parking. Great for children. Must see the predator bird rescue area.

Lots of great trails. Bring the bug spray! They have a nice museum and gift shop, a birds of prey sanctuary and beautiful grounds. Rustic and great for everyone.

The boardwalk after walking a little trail to get to it off the road is well worth the hike. White Memorial is such a beautiful, peaceful, soulful visit as you walk around the waters edge, taking in spectacular views from every vantage point. Photographers come...More
