We spend a Sunday afternoon there and fell in love with this place. We saw many animals in cages and not in cages. We loved to boardwalk and observation tower, but it needs to be cleaned up a little from graffiti and weeds. Even though we spend at least 2 hours here we could have easily stayed longer. Beautiful place... More

This place is a little off the beaten track but very nice. You will definitely want to allow yourself time to not be rushed. The only thing for us was that you are allowed to bring pets but they are not allowed on the boardwalk but the boardwalk is everywhere so you cannot really take your dog anywhere but the... More

First GPS will take you around the world this park is on airways boulevard off of hwy 45 bypass. Second Tennessee has many cypress trees here in this park and especially at reelfoot lake. This place looks like it needs a little tender love and care. There is great opportunity to connect with nature here. The owls are just lovely.... More

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.
