Only been through here 3-4 times, but I really enjoyed my time there. I've walked the pathways and done a few Kayak trips. The upper side of the creek is the most natural and beautiful. The bottom half is more houses and back yards, but...More

Great length of boardwalk and lots of sandy trails. The creek had tons of turtles all sizes and we saw a osprey. It has a lot of shade for walking when the weather is warm. Surprised by how big the sanctuary was.

Some lovely nature preserved by the boardwalk. You can still hear the highway, unfortunately, but the running water, great blue herons, and woodpecker that I heard/saw really lifted the spirits.

Always a nice walk through here. They've been repairing some of the boardwalk and it looks great! Great to see the turtles and tortoises along the walk. There's a few trails off the boardwalk if you're not afraid of getting dirty. If you love nature,...More

Good place to spend a half day hiking. Easy walking on the boardwalk and a little more challenging trail off the boardwalk. Good opportunity to see wildlife and native plants. Bring plenty of water and a snack if you plan to stay awhile.

Yes there are, as long as you stay on the boardwalk trails. I don’t remember seeing any on the “natural” trails.
