there was no signage to get here, but we followed other reviewers so it was easy. The stairs are steep all the way up, but once up there the view is great. But that's it. Only took 5mins lol

This place needs to reconditioned as soon as possible, no signals will tell you where to turn to get there. Observation deck is deteriorated (rust, broken boards,) the place is pretty lonely and littered

If you're a bird watcher this is a place for you. We saw about a half dozen different birds here. The majority of this park is wetlands so you will see a lot of ducks, pelicans, pipers, heron, etc... as well as turtles and lizards....More

Aided by others' guidance, we found this quite easily opposite the Dutch windmill. Drive straight ahead along a slightly bumpy dirt track to park near the​ observation platform. There was a nervous dog near​ it and while we were there a local arrived and filled...More

We found no trace of this attraction. The area is there, but grossly overgrown and untended. I do not believe you could see birds in there if you tried. Sorry. Not worthy of stopping in.
