This is one of my favorite places. The scenery is beautiful, wildlife abundant and quiet despite proximity to a major road. Each season has its own beauty and on this fall day it was amazing. There are benches on the main bridge facing the water...More

There are a few relatively short trails with nice boardwalks to open habitats. There is a long causeway, an old road. Parking is free and there is a public toilet. It does not adjoin Juanita Bay Beach Park - they are quite well separated.
