easy loop walk with the benefit of an eagle nest across the water. Today I saw one of the pair with 2 fledglings. The second adult flew by along the river, but did not fish or return to the nest while I was watching

We were there for the I Love My Parks Day. Fantastic views of the area. It truly is a hidden gem in the area. Highly recommend it for family and dog friendly.

Great walking trails to explore this island. It is smack in the middle of the city with access through neighborhoods to find this lovely oasis.
