  • Loved the fossils (found more during low tide), and the historic artifacts along the trails were also interesting. Saw some beautiful deer, they have sturdy walkways & benches, and it is great for a walk. Looks like it's good for biking as well. Wonderful for contemplative moments near the water, and the fowl there were a teeat to see too. Can't say enough about this park. Such great memories dwell there. I felt something very special in the air, and it was a unique & unforgettable experience.
  • Very good place for short walks along estuary, through forest and along the river (Bay). There are fossils! Saw osprey, bald eagle, turtles, beech trees. Picnic areas.
