“Nature in the middle of suburbia”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This little gem is well-worth the visit if you are looking for a nice little stroll. The main trail is handicapped accessible and provides an upclose experience with nature. Almost year round you can feed the ducks and the geese and see turtles sunning on the logs. Right now there is a pair of owls nesting in the garden and they have proven not to be camera shy. Great place to take the kids or go for a walk with someone special.

“Bog Garden”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice place to take a quiet stroll and reflect on nature. Depending on the season, it may have some pretty flowers. Don't expect too much, but it is a nice "getaway" that I would recommend for locals.

“Peaceful and pretty”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

There are nice walking trails that aren't too long or hilly. Which makes it easy for small children. The kids like to feed the ducks. It is nice and peaceful there, with lots of birds to watch.

Regardless of the season the Bog Garden is always a relaxing place to walk and enjoy nature. Great trails to enjoy the squirrels, chipmunks and ducks. A local gem!
