I had not been to Phinizy in several years. I was very disappointed in how much it has deteriorated. I know that the COVID-19 crisis has impacted them, since the staff is not there. However, much of what I saw was not the result of a couple of months absence but years of neglect. It's a beautiful location and still a nice place to go for a walk. However, many of the boards in the boardwalks are rotted and there were holes in a couple of places on the Rain Garden trail. Trees had fallen over trails and had to be carefully navigated. The saddest part to me was the old cemetery, which dates to the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The last time I was there, the enclosure was mowed and all the gravestones were in good repair. Today, it was a tangle of vines and overgrowth. It was much too dangerous to enter and walk around. It seemed disrespectful of the people who once owned the land.

Fun for the entire family exploring the trails in the park by hiking or bring your bikes. Check the schedule for various events for both day and star gazing at night.

Was looking for some outdoor family fun and was pleasantly surprised at all the nature fun our family at phinizy swamp has to offer. We luckily got to tag along on a class field trip field trip so not only did we get the outdoor experience but learned many unknown facts about nature! Staff is so ready to pour knowledge into you which is a very so amazing!!

This park is beautiful and the paths are very well marked. No worries about getting lost here! Make sure you bring your bug spray and your binoculars because you may just see an alligator or two walking around. There is so much indigenous wildlife in this park, so if you like the outdoors and animal watching - you will love this park.

This place shocked me. It ended up being a really lovely experience, and just a fun way to get out in nature. The trails are easy and enjoyable, offering some pretty great views. A great way to get outdoors and experience something different.
