Bad News is that there are Snakes (bad ones too - Water Moccasins, Copperheads, Cottonmouths) and Gators (I think they only come in one type) and... More

This is a nice place to get out and walk. Bring some water and enjoy a peaceful walk. Not a big parking area. But a very nice place to walk.

Beautiful place to take long, leisurely walks, photo's of nature or family, sitting in a comfy chair and letting the world go by. The list goes on and on as to why visit this amazing park. A true gem to enjoy for all ages.

A beautiful spot to hike, picnic and explore for the whole family. This is a nature park created around natural wetlands treatment of water with easy hiking paths, and lots of flora and fauna to see and learn about. There are things of interest for all ages, learning activities, special events and guided hikes each month.
