Lovely quiet walk, good for birdwatching. Small dock for fishing. At low tide, good to bring kids for catching critters. Short trails in wooded areas and over walkways.

Kudos and thanks to all the volunteers and generous people who keep this "park" open. There are walking paths (unpaved) through the woods, boardwalks through the marsh. The birder in our group spotted a wide variety of species, the most dramatic being the Painted Buntings....More
