Ducks, geese, hawks and other birds will get your attention. The many trails will provide you with exercise and the ever changings of the seasons gives one a different vista each visit.

The park is maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. There are several ponds and many attractive trees. Paths are well maintained and the walking is easy. Restrooms are available. Worth a detour, but not a journey.

Bird Park continues to impress me with it's beauty. There's plenty of trails to walk, several benches throughout the park, and a nice amount of shade to stay out of the sunlight. They put on concerts and movie nights sometimes too.
