What a little gem of a place to birdwatch. Lovely, well-tended trails. The Volunteers at the Nature Center pointed out all the good spots. Nice, clean bathrooms. So many red-wing blackbirds calling in the cattails. Stop off, take a look around the Nature Center, ask...More

Always a peaceful walk filled with lots of animals that kids can seek out on the trails. Bring bug spray if walking around dusk as the bugs enjoy hanging around people.

So picturesque and lovely. Its really a nice outdoor experience. Being near the little pond and river is really great for walking/jogging or letting the kids play. Our kids absolutely love walking along the river and throwing stones while looking for birds and animals.
