Firstly, I never knew there were cypress in Tennessee. Second, this place is awesome fun. It's not far out of Jackson but it's quiet and gorgeous. My kids liked the elevated boardwalk trails and being able to see turtles, frogs, and large carp from it. The birds of prey were cool but the eagle cages seemed really small. It's free... More

The wedding was over, the bride and groom long gone. What is there to do in Jackson? Let's check out the Nature Park. Good idea, the relatives reply. So I put in the attraction but my Tom Tom wanted to go the wrong way. Even Google maps had trouble. But you should go south on "the bypass" and take a... More

I liked walking on the boardwalk through the terrain. I am new to the area so seeing the trees and natural environment was nice. I enjoyed strolling through the trail on the board walk. This was a nice peaceful afternoon spent with my fiancée. We checked out the birds that are there for our viewing pleasure. I did feel that... More

This park consists largely of a long boardwalk through a swamp, the type of setting that seems more like FL than TN. There is also a large aviary where there are lots of captive Hawk, Eagles, and Owls on display.

I often go here to walk and enjoy the outdoors. There is an bird rescue area that is always fun to check out, as well as two ponds that have turtles, alligator gar, and catfish in them (Along with other creatures). The only downfall is that the lookout point has been vandalized, time and time again.

Cypress Grove Nature Park, Jackson Tenn., nice quiet walkways, about a mile total length, good place to take children, they have bald eagles and hawks in large cages. Usually not a lot of people. Only problem with the place is the city does not keep it very clean. Lots of trash. However, despite the trash you will enjoy about 1-2... More

I have taken several visitors, some extremely sophisticated in world travel, and every one of them always ask to return to this park when they come through this area. To me, this is the highest of recommendations for a truly unique and uncontrived experience. This park is essentially elevated walkways over a swamp/cypress grove. Extremely interesting and advantageous to be... More

The trail is a short easy trail accessible with wheelchairs or motorized scooters. It is a nice quiet walk with restrooms and a visitors bureau which was not open when we were there. There were some caged birds I believe an owl and an eagle...not easy to see. The walk is in a wooded untouched forested area located inside the... More

We are on an 8 wk cross country trip. We have seen many beautiful places. Decided to stop here to break up our drive back home and because of the good reviews on TA. We visited our first Swamp Park in SC run by Nature Conservancy. It was pristine with lots of animals. This park showed signs of almost total... More

If you like nature boardwalks, then Cypress Grove is a must-visit. This is a beautiful park and not very well known, so it's not overridden with people all the time. They have a few aviary cages about midway through the boardwalk. They used to have an eagle in one of them; but it's been a while since I lived in... More
