  • Living near, I walk these fields often. The boardwalk is a wonderful place to go no matter what age. Wildlife viewing is outstanding and during the migration months, thousands of birds can be viewed. ...  more »
  • maybe we just came at the wrong time.... trails were excellent but only saw some ducks and LOTS of mosquitoes parking was easy and trail maps excellent.  more »
  • Unfortunately, we were not there at prime birding time (very overcast, cool, between breeding/migrating times, and late morning), but could see that this is a fabulous birding opportunity! Lots of eas...  more »

  • A great place to be in spring when migratory birds like ducks, geese, sandhill cranes and trumpeter swans arrive for the summer. Also a great Sandhill Crane festival in the fall as the cranes gather before their exit before winter.
  • Great for a little walk! Saw some marmots and a lot of birds. Some of the walkways are near-collapsed (which is a problem when there's nothing but lake underneath).
  • Great for birders with some very nice short trails (there's a lot of benches).
  • Maybe I am biased because I grew up down the street but this is my number 2 favorite place in The Fairbanks area. Number one of you exclude anything more than 30 minutes away. As a kid and adult I've walked here, walked talked dogs, seen moose, fell in love with birds, skied, taking pictures(as the subject and the photographer), watched fire works, gotten stuck in the mud, meet new people, "ahh'ed" over God's wonderful creation. Whether you want to take a walk or just sit and watch this is the place to be. If you can, make even a small donation to the preservation.
  • Great set of trails year round for walking, skiing, or biking (couple trails are no bikes allowed) and it has great connections into the Mushers trails. Also there are birds. Lots of birds.
