  • Lovely place for walking and sightseeing. There is a plethora of different wildlife and vegetation. The conservation area is kept very clean. There are places to stop and eat, and the animals are very friendly. Great for family's, couples or if you're looking for a quiet spot to think.
  • Never have I seen such brilliant animals! from the chickadees, woodpeckers and chipmunks to uncommon animals like swans, geese, and even raccoons, you'll be able to feed all of them from your hand. I was lucky enough to cuddle up and play with two baby raccoons not long ago. A herd of turkeys moved in, and while not tame(yet), they seem extremely smart and seem to understand humans aren't there to harm them. Such an amazing place to learn about wild animals up close in their natural habitat.
  • Great place for a quick family outing. Animals are very tame, for wild animals. Bring peanuts and bird seed
  • We loved this place! We fed the Chipmunks and birds right out of our hands! Parts of the trail were nice and shaded on a hot summer day. An oasis in the city.
  • This is a little gem that is close to home. Avoid it on long weekends as the crowds and small parking capacity take away from a pleasant wetland conservation area. In wintertime (or any time of year really) you can feed the chickadees out of your hand.
