  • Beautiful park with a walkway out to the river over marshland. Another elevated walkway that takes you tree top level basically with amazing views of the area. Also a trail, which I have not explored yet, through the woods. Update, have walked the dirt trails and those are nice too, sorry no pictures.
  • Drove all the way up from Indiana just to find out it's closed for the season. Would be nice to know before taking the trip.. Doesn't say anywhere that it's only open seasonly... Doesn't even say it's closed..
  • What a view! And accessable to everyone.
  • So peaceful. The bridge that you walk out on has an amazing view. And the board walk through the marsh made me feel like I was in Florida.
  • BEAUTIFUL!! Very well-maintained, EZ walking, awesome views, this is a must!!!!
