We parked our car and put money in the machine but it seems to be an honour system as we never saw a ranger or any park official the whole time we were there. The boardwalk is a mile long and is well maintained and clean unlike some we have tried. Walk slowly and softly and keep your voice down and you will be rewarded by the wild life you will see. Take bottled water with you and apply insect repellent before you start. Everywhere you look you will find things to interest and the whole park is a haven of peace and tranquillity. A small bird guide book and a pair of binoculars will add to your enjoyment of the park. There are several different ecosystems brimming with flora and fauna .
