Located on Jog Road across from the water treatment plant. The wetlands are partof the filtration system. They have a nature center in the middle wit board walks around it. A very nice quiet, tranquil setting.

Went here at sunset to watch the natural activity and view the rise of the full moon. What a delight! So serene and beautiful. I strongly suggest you check it out at the sunset period to enjoy another time frame. And so many friendly visitors.
