  • This is a good bird site and coming back frequently probably lends itself to some good variety of birds. It's fairly small though and right next to a water treatment plant. If there are any people whe...  more »
  • We have visited many times but this was our first opportunity to see American Coot chicks and Gallinules chicks. They are cute!! We visited around 5:30 p.m.  more »
  • My only issue with this place was the wide expanse of oil rigs and industry feel at the entrance as well as in the distance. Besides that, this is an excellent place to view the salt marsh and animals...  more »

  • Excellent park for birding and just relaxing into nature. Good boardwalks, clean and well-kept grounds, good mix of habitats (trees, marsh, cool woods). Highly recommend.
  • If I had only ONE place in the entire world to view birds, this would be the one. Easy access, great variety of birds, reptiles and small mammals. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. I don't know who Leonabell Turnbull was, but I just want to say 'Thank You'.
  • Great to see wildlife in their element. Knowledgeable staff (volunteers?). Free! Just down wind from the sewage treatment plant, though which makes it hard to stay long. Great photo opps.
  • Nice place to walk around as long as you can stay on dry land.
  • Very nice. A small well maintained park. Bird watchers must visit, large variety of species. Ducks heroines pelicans and various others, we saw about 18 species and a rodent, turtles, and two large alligators. They were 8 and 9 feet sunning. There is a boardwalk and a tower.
