A beautiful park to walk through. Lots of wildlife. Easy walking & a great way to spend some time w/family or friends, or alone to relax.

Phinizy Swamp is a really cool place of nature in Augusta...a great place to visit although people are a little reluctant to 'go to the swamps'! Make sure you take mosquito spray.

Loved it. Very nice, Walked a little bit on the Rain Garden area, very beautiful and nicely maintained. I think you could spend many hours there hiking all the trails. Boardwalks in many areas make the walking very nice. Saw birds and turtles.

Take misquito/bug spray and enjoy the path through the Phinizy swamp in the South Augusta area. Very nice views and very educational.
