So many different types of beautiful birds in a pleasant park. Self guided so you can take your time and really enjoy the birdsvand the setting.

The landing zone where the birds can be fed is great. My 3 year old loved the birds. It is a long way from anywhere and to be perfectly honest...I felt pretty sorry for the caged birds.

My first visit and it is a hidden gem. Feeding the parakeets was a great time for adults and kids. The flamingos are spectacular.

Visited for the first time with my granddaughter. What a beautiful place. Not too big that she got bored and enough to hold even an old guys attention. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

Almost all the paths are paved. I do remember the path to the beaver dam is packed fine gravel dust but I think it would still work good for a wheelchair. Even their raised wooden trails through the wetlands and other... More
