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.

Great place to get some exercize and view nature, the boardwalk goes through all of the woods and it is very well done with a few places to sit along the way

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.
