Visited this place in February on a sunny afternoon. If I remember correctly there were four trails in this park. The trails were a bit over an hour in a brisk pace, and you'll get to see marshland, bayou, small lake, etc.. At the entry...More

The nature center was a pleasant surprise for my husband and I. We toured the center on a Friday afternoon. We walked many of the beautiful trails. The trails are level and wide. Most trails were made of small gravel and there were some boardwalks....More

A good place to visit for a few hours to get away from the city. Very informative and the volunteers are really worth talking to as they are very knowledgeable. Value too at only $4.
