A must do at the shore. Great tour guides or signs that will show you all the great things that thrive at Cattus Island. Great for families and friends too. You can take a nice walk or jog the paths as well.

Lots of nature and there is also a nature center to visit. At the end of our walk we were at a small beach overlooking the bay and were able to enjoy the serenity. Loved it.

I visit here often for Jogging. It's quiet and great views. The trees make for a natural relaxing atmosphere.

Unusual natural area with hiking and running trails. The Nature Center was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy and will not open again until spring 2016. There are a lot of naturalist led programs for the public on weekends, and schools during the week. No swimming, but there is a canoe/kayak launch area. This area has a serious problem with ticks...

I've been there many, many times over the years. It suffered greatly in hurricane Sandy. It is on it's way back. The Nature Center was totally destroyed. Several of the nature walks have been out. Standby for an update once they get through rebuilding.

My husband and three young children had a wonderful hike here today. We did the gray trail which led directly to the bay. The park was peaceful and beautiful, and my children very much enjoyed playing in the sand when we got to the bay. There is a cute playground as well. An excellent choice for a day in nature....

We visited this county park on a sunny Saturday in early October. The main visitor's center is closed due to storm damage so we made our way to the program building looking for a bathroom and a person who could provide information ( no signs told us where we might find a person connected to the park, maps etc). There... More

This park is a great place to bring friends, your dog, family members, to bike, etc. They have a great nature conservatory, and in October, they have a great little terror walk.
