  • 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 nature walk. Kids and adults love feeding the birds and chipmunks. Occasionally turkeys, deer and racoons are also present. Lots of walking trails. Pay & Display parking. Washrooms.
  • 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.
  • Lovely nature preserve, one my favorites. And with the addition of a bike path even better.
  • Very nice place would go back any time I am bored
