Whether you are a kid, a birder, a photographer or just out for a stroll, this is a great place to visit. It is very popular on the weekends and you may want to try for weekday visits. Staff are amazing at identifying possible sightings.

A nice easy walk with ducks everywhere. My grandchildren and I had ducks, a crane, chickadees and little black birds eating right out of our hands. Got lots of beautiful pictures of the grand children having a great time! Great place for a great walk!
