  • Great place to walk and enjoy the outdoors! The paths are clearly marked and lots of scenery to see. When we went they closed some of the travels to work on them which was fine but looking forward to exploring the rest of the park. The museum area is small but informative. I really enjoyed being able to see what an actual Bald Eagles nest looks like. I definitely learned a lot from visiting.
  • I can tell this is a great place in spring and fall. Was too warm the day i went. But we did see over 150 pelicans and 75+ egrets at Pintail.
