Quick hike through some history.

Quick hike to explore a bit of wildlife, wilderness and history. Less than an hour spent on site but many photos taken of the flora.

This spot is gorgeous and peaceful, and most people (including locals) don't even know it's there. There is only one street sign off of the main road that tells you where to turn, so don't miss it. It's back in a neighborhood on the North side of the Island. The shell mounds have long since been covered with trees and... More

A great place to enjoy a picnic. We took a picnic and enjoyed an afternoon at the park. Absolutely beautiful! A great place to relax and take the island in.

Very interesting little park. One of the WONDERFUL green spaces that make the east side of the island very tranquil. Make sure to bring mosquito spray. You absolutely need it to enjoy your walk through the twisting and turning trails. You don't really see big mounds of shells. But it is interesting to read about the native americans visiting and...

We had the place all to ourselves. Easy parking, lots of mosquitoes, well kept trail. Make sure to wear mosquito repellent or cover up. It was very hot the day we went but cool under the shady, mossy trees. Lots of birds, saw some frogs. The shell mounds were covered by leaves. More informative signs would have been interesting, as... More

I just visited here to say I saw it. There are a couple of signs to say what the place is and it really is just a mound of dirt and shells with walking trails in the woods. It's history underfoot and can be seen in a few minutes.

Well this was not what I expected, the front sign was nice, the trees were beautiful, but it was not well kept, the bugs were horrible, I'm sure if you could set there long enough there would have been some interesting creatures, may have been the wrong time of the year? I might go back to see if it was... More

This place is pretty close to how the Indians would have left it. The trails are kept clear for walking and there are a few benches scattered through the park. This is a great spot for birding during the spring and fall migrations.

We visited last April and again this year. Expect may might be better but April was wonderful. Pretty place lots of birds, many species and birders from all over who pointed out birds our untrained eyes would have otherwise missed seeing. Will be back earlier next year. L & B Church

The lady I was with wanted to go, and it turned out very interesting. Take the time to visit and view the birds, the plant life, and yes....even the shell mound.
