“Great way to see wetland park. Always see animals”

I love coming to this park with my children. It provides a nice woodland path that leads to a boardwalk that provides you with a unique view of a vast wetland area. My children like it because you spot frogs, herons, turtles, fish, snakes--an easy way to see animals in the wild. The nature center is also worth a visit. The park has dedicated and well-informed volunteers that are also helpful. It is best to go in the summer or late spring when there is the most visible life in the wetlands.

I use to live in this area and Huntley Meadows was the only place for outdoor lovers around there. It has a great boardwalk over marshlands. Can be favorite for bird lovers and photographers. I've been numerous times and never encountered crowds.

a birders delight. A child's place to discover. A nice walk in the woods where everyone is friendly and you can feel comfortable.

The park is a great trip with the family, a quick stroll into nature, or an afternoon of watching the wildlife. There are always lots of wildlife to view and it is fun to see how the beavers have changed the water flow.

I love walking through this park -- well kept trails and usually lots of other walkers. Small visitor's center with interesting exhibits for the kids. Boardwalks take you through the marsh and wetland and whatever time of year it is, you'll find some animal or bird life to observe.
