If you live in this area, it is a beautiful walk on the elevated boardwalk (to preserve the nature). Quiet, peaceful, perhaps even a bit mystical the further you walk. The Rhino tree is super-neat! Note: it is not a park, but a preserve.

There are no bathrooms here. At 1035 acres this is a good size nature park. The trail is completely comprised by a boardwalk. There is plenty of wildlife to see here. This is a secluded park. Not many visitors.

This nature preserve has a boardwalk that is handicapped accessible and is very nice to walk on. Wear bug spray in the spring and summer. Lovely place to watch the seasons change and view wildlife. Ducks, geese, frogs, birds... occasional deer.
