  • Super fun place to watch and feed the birds. The nature walk is also very fun for the kids. Price is $5 per adult and $3 for kids and seniors. They won't let you enter after 4pm, but you have up to 5pm before they close the gate. The family really loves the place and we'll definitely come again
  • Excellent place to get up close with some birds. When I went in August, there were Canada geese and ducks everywhere. The office sells bags of seeds for the birds for only $1. One bag is more than enough for one person. They don't allow anyone to enter after 4pm so plan accordingly.
