We loved Bird City. Such a beautiful lagoon So many birds nesting on the piers, platforms, and trees. Great for photographic opportunities. We observed other wildlife, including turtles. The walk to the sanctuary is beautiful.

unfortunately not. uneven ground and stairs to climb. You may want to check with the little store there though. maybe there is another place to view it from that may be wheel chair accessible
