Excellent place for a walk. Views of meadows, woods and over Barnstable harbour to Sandy Neck. Mostly flat and pushchair friendly. I'd say limited access for wheelchairs. Many... read more

In all seasons, the marshes are beautiful and filled with wildlife. As an artist there is always something there for me to paint. As a nature lover, there is always something new to see.

Excellent place for a walk. Views of meadows, woods and over Barnstable harbour to Sandy Neck. Mostly flat and pushchair friendly. I'd say limited access for wheelchairs. Many different types of trees that are all clearly labelled. Pens with goats in. Free for Mass Audobon members, otherwise $4. Gift shop and restrooms. Interpretative bee exhibit. Access to beach for walk... More

A beautiful location with trails, meadows, and water front property. Unfortunately, it was raining and we are looking forward to returning in better weather. The people in the visitor center were friendly and informative, we highly recommend a visit.

This is a great place to view wildlife, I saw lots of birds and insects including waxwings, catbirds, and cicada killers among others. There was a visitor center and many well kept trails that led through a variety of environments including beach, woods, salt marsh, ponds, pasture and others. The staff was helpful and eager to help visitors with questions... More

Can't say enough about Mass Audubon & their amazing staff that make great trips such a memorable experience. We have done the Cuttyhunk trip out of Woodshole which was just terrific, a working island, full of life & history. We just did the Sandy Neck Lighthouse Kayak Trip! Wow! We had only kayaked once before, but our guides were knowledgeable... More

Interesting information on local wildlife and short hikes. The walk on the sandbar was lovely & we found some horseshoe crabs laying eggs. The goats are too cute.

My son, Greg Hipius, has written an excellent review of the LPWS and I encourage you to read what he says. I won't be redundant and repeat it all, but just add a few perspectives of my own. You probably won't spend more than an hour or two here unless you really want to explore all the trails and linger... More

Long Pasture provides the kayaks and tour guide. It was beautiful day to paddle across the harbor. We saw lots of birds , paddle thru a marsh - just beautiful. Then we paddle to lighthouse. We went up in small groups and the view was just amazing. We paddle back to nature center with sun setting .

We visited in the afternoon after a local whale watch, and due to impending bad weather and fatigue didn't have enough time to really enjoy everything. The facility is very young as these places go - only about a decade old - and so it is still growing and establishing. The visitors' center is modest, but staffed by a very... More

With my 2 and 4 year old we went on an explore here. There were lots of crabs, clams, birds, snails... My kids were very happy splashing in the warm tide pools. The views were amazing. We are Audubon members so we got in with our membership, but if you want to save a buck you can park at the... More
