  • A wonderful place to be out in nature there are very interesting walking trails, some paved some not. They have bird walks on Saturday that are very informative.  more »

  • This may not be the prettiest place to visit but it is a great learning experience for everyone. They only have a few trails but if you choose the correct one it is a 3-5 mile hike. I usually choose the longer ones, when I have the time, because you get to the areas that most visitors do not see. With its proximity to the city and airport ,the views through the trees and over the pond are great. The staff in the main nature building are friendly and very knowledgeable. It is a great place to take the whole family, groups, and schools.
  • This is one of my favorite local places. I can always find a secluded niche. I can just sit in my car and enjoy myself. Parking gets full on the weekend mornings in nice weather.
  • It was wonderful to walk through the refuge! I saw the most beautiful hawk that perched on a branch which allowed me to get great photos of it. Also, there were swans, egrets, herons, big turtles and fabulous weather to go with all of the wild life.
  • Beautiful trails to walk. Helpful staff in the education center. Refuge grounds kept clean and well maintained for our access. Can't wait to get back there when life returns to the grounds of the park and we can go fishing ;)
  • This place is awesome, great trails for walking and hiking. Use the Wanamaker ave entrance for more solitude, but it seems a solid experience all around. Fishing, canoeing, bird and wild life watching all near phila.
