Short little boardwalk out into the marsh. Low tide is best to look for waterfowl. Have spotted a little blue heron there quite frequently this winter

There is a sandy portion that is a little harder than the rest of the walk. I have done this many times during the years. If there is rain there may be wet places.

This was a pretty small park. About a half hour to see it all. There was a playground, so of course needed some play time. Didn't even hurt myself! Would probably skip it in the future, but it was dog friendly..a bonus around the area.

After visiting Heritage Nature Preserve (recommended by a previous reviewer) this place is very disappointing. It only has one short trail to an overlook. The whole thing took about 15 minutes. Not worth the trip.

If you are looking for a beautiful quiet place to relax, think, ponder a major life decision or just observe nature, I recommend this beautiful little park. I went in the early morning and watch some local fishermen netting some bait. Check it out!

Beautiful marsh to watch birds and other nature at sunrise. Easy to park and short walk to overlook. Birds feeding and fish jumping.

A lot of interesting little creatures in the mud at low tide. No fishing is allowed off the dock. A nice place just to soak in the sounds and sights of the marsh.

Excellent place to experience local wildlife! Crabs, jumping fish, birds! Good place to relax and take pictures, very quiet!
