We enjoyed going there and seeing the wildlife and lake. However, you must be aware that in the evenings an unsavory element from a nearby housing facility can be a real problem. Go in groups, and ladies I would suggest going with a man. Concealed...More

Nice little park - the walking trails are easy to navigate. Lots of trees and nature - ducks, geese and herons are common here. Great place to walk the dog - they even have "clean up" stations so you can pick up after your dog....More

This is a well maintained and safe Wildlife Park Trail a little over a mile long. It is suitable for families but not for children under 4 years old. Take bottled water with you if the day is warm.

Very nice park with boardwalks through canopy. Lots of birds and wildlife. Recommend going in pairs or with group. Because some areas are a little quite you'll feel more comfortable.

If you are looking to get out and experience nature via walk, jog, or bike this is for you. I would caution you not to do it alone. It is very remote.

This is a great place to visit everyday and do your walking miles. Very well kept, wooded and a lake very close by. Many Canada Geese and now lots of babies. Love this place.

Nice enough trail that has a long boardwalk that crosses the Coosa to an island and a gravel section that connects to the Gadsden Mall. Good parking on both ends. Good place for bird viewing.
