We were in town for a Gospel Music concert and found this park on Trip Advisor. What a great activity while you're here! An incredible cypress grove with trees that you don't see very often. Just lots of beautiful nature. Everything is on a wooden board walk so navigation is very easy. The park was originally constructed in the 1980s so some of the boardwalk is a bit dilapidated. I hope there are plans to refurbish and maintain it. I would highly recommend this if you are in the area.

This is my favorite park in Jackson. As a resident, I can admit there is not a lot to do in Jackson, but we are in between Memphis and Nashville! This park is beautiful with many beautiful sights to take in. If you are in Jackson, take the time to view this!

I was hoping to use this park as a stretch break on a road trip across I-40 (travelling solo). It was a few miles off the highway but seemed to be in a somewhat remote area. When I pulled in late morning there was not another soul in site and the small education building appeared to not have had any maintenance done in a long time. I was not comfortable getting out of the car and went back to the highway.

We are on an 8 wk cross country trip. We have seen many beautiful places. Decided to stop here to break up our drive back home and because of the good reviews on TA. We visited our first Swamp Park in SC run by Nature Conservancy. It was pristine with lots of animals.
This park showed signs of almost total neglect. We were shocked to see all the trash(beer and soda cans and plastic bottles) right next to the boardwalk which could be easily picked up. There were tires especially on the shore of the lake. Multiple rusted 50 gallon drums were seen. The observation tower was covered with graffiti. We saw few animals...2 squirrels, a blue heron and some turtles on a log at the lake. The only area that looked cared for was the Raptor cages. Thankfully there were dead mice put out for the birds. Other than that the place looked like it had been abandoned. I plan to contact the "Friends" of this park and forward them the pictures of the trash I took. Interestingly, there is a planting of flowers in the parking lot which looks well cared and the bathrooms were clean and stocked, so there is some maintenance of the park. I commented that even the animals have abandoned the area.

The wedding was over, the bride and groom long gone. What is there to do in Jackson? Let's check out the Nature Park. Good idea, the relatives reply. So I put in the attraction but my Tom Tom wanted to go the wrong way. Even Google maps had trouble. But you should go south on "the bypass" and take a right on Airport. The entrance will be on your left after a couple of miles. We were there on a late spring afternoon. The shade in the grove was very nice. The cottonwood trees were sending out the little floating seeds and the sun was angling through catching the floaters in the air giving a mystical sensation a little like in Avitar, if you saw the movie.(3D). The air was fragrant with the smell of the forest. Cypress is a fragrant wood, afterall.
Anyway, this attraction consists of boardwalks into a forest with 5-6, or maybe more, 2 story bird pens with injured raptors, including barred owls, great horned owls, a cooper's hawk, a bald eagle, an american golden eagle and a few more I don't remember. We also saw a scarlet tanager and its mate come down from the canopy. There were a number of lizards on the boardwalk be we did not see any snakes. There are turtles in the pond. It was good exercise with some wildlife to observe. There is parking for about 30 cars. Altogether it is a refreshing place today right on the edge of a small city. We did not take the entire trail. There is a website with a stylised map of the trails. I would have preferred a map to scale. This would be a good place for children to spend a little excess energy, or to go on a stroll with a sweetheart.

Because I love nature, this review is very biased. There are a lot of birds that you can look at while at Cypress Grove and they have an amazing and beautiful track to walk.

No pets allowed!! Not even on leash. Very disappointed. Nothing was stated on website. Didn’t walk the boardwalk because we were not allowed to take our 10 lb dog.

We walked through the park after driving into Jackson on our way to the East Coast. It was a nice relaxing way to finish the day. We didn't see that much wildlife, but it was a nice walk. We did hear many birds, saw a few, but nothing like the Owls and Hawks seen by others. We did see a few turtles and a heron in the lake. Regardless, we enjoyed the experience and exercise.
