“Back to unspoiled nature”
Review of Heron County Park

Attraction details
Reviewed 25 July 2017

Visited yesterday with wife and it was such a peaceful, stress-free environment to walk along the 900'+ boardwalk and see unspoiled nature. The boardwalk is very safe and wide enough for wheelchair and offers many fantastic views of the wetlands area.
Saw many fish both small and large along with white swans and a beaver swam up within 20' of us. The lotus were in full bloom so it was very beautiful this time of year.

This park is very easy to walk through and has very close parking to the board walk. The view is beautiful and the board walk is fantastic. We walked around and read the posted signs about what type of wildlife could be found in the area.

I drive by this place often and rarely see more than a car or 2 there. It's a shame because the nature that it provides for viewing is great for this area. I often see bald eagles sitting in a nearby tree and blue herons scattered about the wetlands and much more.
The boardwalk is fantastic just wish they would/could extend it to the east and west as well to run along the north edge of the wetland area.

I can not be able to tell anyone to go here. There is a small parking lot and wooden walkway with a wooden tower about two stories tall. There's nothing else there no concession, information or restrooms. Not a safe area last time I was attached by someone on drugs or drunk.

Nice area. Reminded me of swamps in Louisiana. A boardwalk takes you out into the swamp and usually you can get some really cool pictures of nature. Have sawa bald eagle there before. Also a lookout tower to view out of. Kids will like it to.
