  • I love coming to Sheldon's Marsh because of the paved walk way. It makes it ideal for walks when it recently rained or snowed. The marsh is on both sides of you and the chances to see aquatic life and...  more »
  • Great natural resource for birding, walking, etc. It does have a shoreline to see shorebirds etc. Trails are paved and stoned.  more »

  • Such a fabulous place to see and feel nature. I use a rolling walker for balance and it was so nice to be able to use the main trail and walk all the way to the edge of Lake Erie, take off my shoes, walk in the sand and put my feet in the waters edge. One little side trail led to a beach over looking a Lighthouse and Cedar Point. The wild life was amazing, from various birds to a friendly ground hog who came out to eat the peanuts my friends offered. I love this place.
  • Great place to take a quick little stroll through nature. Paved, with handicap accessible lookout decks looking over the marsh. There is a beach at the other end. Please, don't feed the animals. There are many bats, birds, turtles, snakes, fish, and squirrels.
  • I love it here but the port-o-pot is unusable. Hand Sanitizer is broken the door does not shut and lock and there's feces all over the toilet seat and lid . I called the number on the board for the manager and he told me they don't take care of that. He said they have a company that does that. I told him that either the company is not doing it or not doing it often enough . He didn't really seem to care. I had to leave halfway through my visit to go home and use the restroom. I will update this review if the port-o-pot gets taken care of in the next week.
  • Nice walk on a paved trail and boardwalk to the water, we've even seen a family of foxes hanging out on the trail.
  • Nice stroll through a wooded area to a beach on Lake Erie. It was really quiet when we visited; there were only a few others on the beaches. We saw a lot of birds and squirrels.
