Birds, Flowers, Bees -- and a small airport that's busy enough to watch take offs and landings. The trails are flat and not overdeveloped (no asphalt). 1-5 mile walks, clearly marked. I love it here and after a while, you see the regulars.

The Baylands is a quiet place to ride your bike , hike or just watch the birds. The Interpretive Center has internal and external displays coupled with a long walkway through the marsh.

Fun to feed the ducks and birdwatch at the Baylands. This is the spot every elementary school child visits on a field trip to study about their local environment. The interpretive center is sweet and the boardwalk over the mudflats has braille plaques to interpret...More
