    If you see little boats in the picture this is also a relaxing way to enjoy the River/marsh/County park. We (21 k yachts) put in at the riverside boat landing behind the Beach which has a $7 in state ...  more »

    This is a lovely place to enjoy nature with a canopy walkway overlooking the Galien River and adjoining marsh. It's a well maintained park and the walk to the river is easily doable for almost anyone.  more »

    This park is really impressive. I really appreciate the scenic overlook because it allows you the possibility to see the wildlife with scaring them off. This is a model to how I wish a lot of other nature parks could be. Well worth the trip!

    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.

    If you live anywhere from New Buffalo to Three oaks, back to Union Pier and all the way North where Bridgman is (our home!), you must go out here for a visit. Whether you are an adult who wants to have a wonderful view of the Galien River along with putting your eye on a beautiful bird, or whether you are a twelve year old that is able to make the walk, ask your folks to bring you. It's a nice walk. My wife and I live in Bridgman and we have done this several times. One thing I pass on is someone moving around too much or quickly on the suspension bridges. But maybe that is another selling point to the younger goofballs. But please be safe while your up there. Great and beautiful space and view.

    Great small park that requires a short hike to see a great overlook of the Galien River. There is also an option to walk down to get closer to the river. Definitely worth the walk! There is also a nice little park across the street.
