This was an OK visit, but don't get too carried away with it and you will not be disappointed. There is a pretty ordinary visitor centre and some unspectacular walking paths. Okay, but only if you happen to be passing.

This is an in-town lowland, typical Louisiana cypress swamp. A rare find. however it is now difficult to stop and get a "visitor's view of it because of construction around it. It is a beautiful little oasis. Perhaps I missed an interpretive center.
We enjoyed walking around in the Bluebonnet Swamp park. It’s a good way to enjoy nature and be away from the noise and smells of the city, although we didn’t see much animals other than birds and squirrels
