Went last fall and had a nice time, brought some fried chicken for our pizza and enjoyed seeing some nice wildlife in a reasonable walking distance. Want to go back this year before the snow flies.

The Inglewood bird Sanctuary is a nice place to relax and enjoy nature. Although I was there on business, I saw a lot of families enjoying the area.

This place was terrible, we walked for an hour and saw no birds. They didn't even provide a map of their site. The lady working was not friendly.

A bit of heaven less than 4 miles from the city center. What a lovely way to spend a few hours walking/strolling this wonderful park. We are bird watchers and this place delivered. It is also free. Lots of habitat-woodsy, water, scrub, and paved the whole way with several bridges. You would never know that it suffered terrible flooding damages... More

My family and I have been frequent visitors over the years and we always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. We try to go at least twice a year to see the birds at different stages of growth. Kids especially love it and its always a pleasure to see their interest in the different species of birds and how gentle they are... More

The bird sanctuary was decimated by the flood of 2013 and about half of it is still closed and in recovery mode. I've been coming here for years and even this year there are nesting pairs of Wood ducks. I have never not seen wood ducks there. Not as many other ducks as usual this year.

this is a great place to see birds that may not be any other place in the city. If it is quiet the birds will chatter to each other and come close to the pathways. Great place for pictures. It is like entering a whole other world. great info center at the gate.
