  • Cute little nature preserve its a nice half mile walk to the beach with some trails for bird watching. Lots of little marshy areas covered in moss. I always appreciate preservetion efforts but fot the average person walking through its nothing spectacular.
  • Very well taken care of, peaceful walkabout down to the lake in this little biome booming with life. Feel free to spend anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour here.
  • I fell in love with this place. Great place for a walk.
  • Thorne Swift Nature Preserve very nice
