The visitor center isn't always open - I believe it is staffed with volunteers and that can be challenging. But the board walk, nature trails and photography blind are very nice. Almost hate to tell too many people about this secret treasure!

I had driven by this place for years before I finally stopped for a hike. It's a nice little wetland in the city. Go sit in a bird blind for a while and see what lands.

If you are into taking pictures of birds and of different wildlife this is a nice place to go for that. I have been there several times just to see different wildlife.

great place to drop the stress and re-commune with nature. I like to take the dogs for a walk here while my husband unwinds.
