Very nice nature walk along the boardwalk to the lake. They have an eagle, owls and hawks in large inclosures along the walk. It's a decent walk, not for very small children unless you have a stroller. The lake area is beautiful with all kinds of water fowl, turtles and frogs. The bathrooms are very clean. Don't forget the bugspray!

We really enjoy visiting here. The boardwalks are neat to walk on. The birds are so cool to see up close. It's a very nice and relaxing way to go for a nice walk. Ending up at the pond and watching nature can't be beat. Everyone should visit here sometime.

Park that has a boardwalk through the woods. There are several birds you can see in cages, even a bald eagle. There are windows two areas so both kids and adults can look through. Can walk at leisure, there's an area to sit down in the front. Building with restroom and office.

Nature walks are neat. Animals are in cages looked like injured one that are in rehab... Boardwalk needs a lot of work. But for a nice walk after a big lunch for free its a nice place to stop.

Intriguing, peaceful experience along an enchanted Boardwalk. The cypress knees rose from the swamp floor like families of mystical beings with tall rounded hats and mossy beards. An amazing place to get in touch with nature and capture some interesting photos.

I recently visited this park during a short trip to Jackson. The boardwalk is a nice, easy walk through the Cyprus Grove. I enjoyed the raptor walk as well. The board walk is well shaded, so a nice, pleasant place to take a nice walk

The boardwalk through the swampy cypress trees is an interesting experience. There doesn't seem to be any security or supervision here. The graffiti on the observation tower was appalling. The sound of the traffic is constant. But we liked this place.

We really enjoyed the birds of prey exhibits, though do not go if you are squeamish due to their food (bloody mice) laying around. I think I read somewhere that that the birds are rescues. It is very educational and the eagles and hawks are very impressive. Nobody was there the day we went and it was kind of spooky.... More

This was our first trip to Cypress Grove. There is a boardwalk running through the park so much of it is accessible. There was no one attending the facility while we were there on a Monday and no maps of the trails available. Hopefully, the rehab raptors in the spacious cages are fed and cared for on a regular basis.

I had read the positive reviews but was still pleasantly surprised. We spent about an hour strolling the boardwalk, checking out the raptors (which all had a small pile of dead mice waiting for them!) but the walk itself was the highlight. We especially enjoyed the cypress knees, and the beauty of the green, green forest. We had a picnic... More
