Beautiful areas, saw animals in the trails. Fawn, rabbits, many different birds. People fishing and crabbing and a neat playground area for small kids. Piers to fish from or just watch the waters. My only complaint too dang hot.
Really nice nature park would love to bring my grandchildren here on my next trip to Texas. There's a great deal of peace and serenity, one can get in tune with oneself. Love it 💗💯
