“Very peaceful”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

It was a beautiful drive back to park. I enjoyed hiking the blue trail and sat for awhile at the pond and enjoyed the sun, birds, and breeze.

I didnt mind paying a fee as it cost money to keep up these parks and I found the experience very relaxing. The bird blind was great as well. Plan to visit again.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

If you like to walk in the countryside, this is a great place to do it. They charge a fee, but what is the big deal( $4), you spend more than that to do other things. It's very quiet and a nice change from being in town around all the cars and noise( and you learn a thing or two along the way.)

“overpriced”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Overpriced walking trails, you can hike many other places for free. Other than a few bird feeders not much of nature center.

“Buckley Wildlife Sanctuary”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Not much to do, you can only watch birds for so long. Can take a walk but watch out for ticks.
