This is a really neat and unique place. I remember when I was a kid (I grew up up the street) and this building was a bar. The transformation into a reserve of this quality is simply amazing.

I had driven by this place for years before I finally stopped for a hike. It's a nice little wetland in the city. Go sit in a bird blind for a while and see what lands.

If you are into taking pictures of birds and of different wildlife this is a nice place to go for that. I have been there several times just to see different wildlife.
