  • Why did I wait so long to go here. Magnificent birding, so close to a metropolitan area. Thank you John Heinz, thank you.
  • It was beautiful. Biking on the paved trails was great, but then without warning some roads went from paved to unpaved. The bus stop is nearby and convenient to south philly.

  • Hidden (or not so hidden) urban jem. Reminds me a bit of the Everglades. Great for a long walk or run. You may catch some beautiful birds you wouldn't normally see.
  • its a very beautiful place. very educational for your kids to go and adventure up the hike to see many wildlife of many kinds. I went here many times as a kid and loved every single time. the workers there are very kind and respectful. I might be going back sometime in the future
